Advice for New Teachers – #EdublogsClub Prompt 32

This post is part of the #EdublogsClub – a group of educators and edtech enthusiasts that blog around a common theme each week. Simply write a post and share it to join in, or sign up to receive email reminders of each new prompt. 

Once upon a time, you were a new teacher. This week, you’re sharing the advice you wish someone had given you before your first school year.

It is the beginning of the school year for most in the Northern Hemisphere. So there is no better time to pass your wisdom along!

Prompt: Write a post about giving advice to new teachers. 

  1. What was the best piece of advice a veteran teacher gave you and why?
  2. If you could tell your first-year-teaching self one thing, what would it be and why?
  3. Tell a story about a lesson you learned in your first year of teaching that has impacted you throughout your career.
  4. Put together a list of resources you think every new teacher needs.

Happy blogging!

    1. Hi Walt,
      Thanks for leaving your blog post link. It sounds like you have some great plans for the school year.
      I love this quote “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.” I think it applies to a lot of things.
      I hope you have a great year and I’m looking forward to following your work!

    1. Hi Barupatx!
      I’ve just made my first visit to your blog and you sure are a wealth of information.
      Looking forward to following more of your work,

    2. I read your last post and it is so rich I must come again! I sent your Library Lesson Planner to my colleague in charge of our Library in school. She is also a teacher in a classroom and then she is responsible for the Library, and is present there at certain hours, but we don’t have a true “Teacher Librarian” job in our country (yet). Trough your post, I can see how engaging and alive it may be.

    1. Hey N!
      You’re right about great teachers learning as they go along. Very insightful post!
