Grades 6-8 First Year Teacher's Guide to Survival

by Megan Laibovitz


If you are a new teacher, you need this book. Inside the survival guide you will uncover all the tools necessary for a successful first year.  Many teaching programs fail to prepare new teachers for the reality of the classroom.  Dealing with mounds of paperwork, communicating with parents or even organizing a field trip are not taught in education programs, but this book guides you through all new teacher pitfalls starting from the day you get your job through the end of your first school year.  You will find practical advice, tips from experienced teachers and a teacher toolkit full of ready to copy material.  Take advantage of this opportunity to enter your classroom with the experience and confidence most teachers have to learn the hard way.
