Advice for New Teachers Linky Party!!

After spending a lot of time helping my daughter prepare for her classroom, and talking to my student teacher from last year who just got her first teaching job I started thinking about all the advice I give out to new teachers and was wondering what other great advice other experienced teachers would give them! So I thought this would make a GREAT topic for my very first Linky Party! 

So its time to dig back into your past and think about what you wish someone would have told you when you first started out teaching! Give us your best advice from your experiences!

Mine is - 
Say what you mean and mean what you say. 
Be consistent
Set aside at least one evening during the week to not do anything school related at all.

Can't wait to see what advice all you great teachers have for those who are new to our wonderful profession!!


  1. I would just like to say thank you so much for making this Linky Party! I am going to be starting my first year and can use all the support and suggestions I can get this upcoming year. I am hoping to share my struggles and success as I make my way through my first year. Thank you again from the bottom of my hear!

  3. Thank you so much for this linky party! I will be starting my first year in a little over a week. I have already started reading through everyone's tips!

  4. Thanks for your comment, Cindy. I am thankful you are doing this and I was able to share. My first year was horrible. I love it that the "blogging world" is so teacher-friendly! All the sharing done here really makes my day! :)

  5. Wow, thank you for hosting this Linky party. I am an Australian teaaching student who has 4 weeks left of classroom practice, before I officially become a 'new teacher'. I cannot wait to read everyone's advice:) I love your advice about taking a night off a week, that makes lots of sense! Thanks so much again. Have a lovely week ahead.
