Teacher Talk Tuesday!

Join the Linky Party at Blog Hoppin'

Wow ~~ What advice do I want to give to new teachers?  I have learned so much over the years! 

One of the things that made a huge impact on me was becoming a parent.  I learned what it was like to be on the other side of teaching.  Parenting is a lot of work and as a beginning teacher without children I guess I felt like, Why are they completing the homework, where's the lunch money?

As a parent I realize how much little time we have every night.  I make parent communication an important part of my teaching.  This starts at the beginning of the year with a parent handbook.  I collect information on all the students and I send home a weekly email/newsletter. 

I always make a positive phone call early in the year so when or if I have to make a negative call it's easier and the communication is clearer.

  2. Wow - something very interesting is going on with blogger! I couldn't follow you either. Also, most of this post has disappeared. How frustrating. Please stop again some time.
