What To Expect Your First Year of Teaching.
DePaul, Amy
This booklet discusses what teachers may encounter in their first year of teaching, presenting information from teachers themselves. Information comes mainly from a series of discussions held among winners of the First Class Teachers Award sponsored every year by Sallie Mae, a corporation dedicated to education. Focus group discussions with winning teachers addressed such issues as: what the first year was like; what the toughest challenges were; what principals and administrators can do to help; what colleges and universities should know in order to prepare preservice teachers for the real world of teaching; what the greatest rewards were; how the students influenced the experience; whether preparation was sufficient; and what insights experienced teachers had to offer new teachers. The booklet provides resources for further information, offers a checklist of tips from first-year and veteran teachers, and presents acknowledgments of teachers who helped make the book possible.
