First Year Teaching Tips

This year was my first year teaching in the classroom. I had a class of ten kindergarten students. I believe that I had the best circumstances for first year teachers because my class was so small and they were kindergarteners. The only problem was where to start? How do I set up my classroom? Where am I gonna find all my resources I need? How do I spend my faculty senate money? These were some of the many questions that I had when I started teaching at the beginning of the year. I wanted to start this blog so other first year teachers could get the help from other seasoned teachers who knew the ins and outs of the first year!


  1. One of the best resources out there is Harry WOng's book "The First Days of School". It is common sense and written in an easy to access and use format.

  2. I have read that book at totally agree! A veteran teacher recommended it and it has definitely assisted with my "first 180 days of school." Well...almost 180 days...haha :O)
