This is a "dual purpose" post and I hope that doesn't annoy too many people! :)
I got my "Welcome" bulletin board finished today and wanted to share. I'm pretty excited about how it turned out! I'd like to welcome you to join my linky party to show off YOUR welcome BB too!
Now for Teacher Talk Tuesday... this is part of Blog Hoppin's Teacher Week linky party! Today's topic is advice for new teachers...
1.) You can't control everything and sometimes things don't go as planned and it's OK! Not really advice, but something to keep in mind. It took my classroom being destroyed by a fire 2 weeks before my 3rd year started for me to REALLY get that. It was OK! I still taught and my kids still learned and I could control nothing! :)
2.) You will never be caught up. But please make time for yourself... even if it means that cool bulletin board you wanted to do has to wait.
3.) Everyone says this and please know that it really is true... be courteous and respectful to your school secretary and custodians! They both do so much for you and are very willing to help if you have developed a good relationship with them.
