Are you a brand new teacher? Or are you a “newish” teacher who still feels brand new?
I have some tips that will help you to have a fantastic first year!

Here is an overview of the tips covered in this episode:
- Read your standards, even though it isn’t fun.
- Meet up with your team lead before back to school time.
