Editor's Perspective Article: Alternative Certification Teachers--Strategies for the Transition to a New Career
Evans, Brian R.
Journal of the National Association for Alternative Certification, v10 n2 p32-36 Fall 2015
New teachers who are prepared to teach through alternative certification pathways may find the transition to a new career stressful and tumultuous. There are techniques that can be used to help make the transition easier on new teachers as they begin their new careers. This article explores several strategies for new teachers, which include approaching the new school year with a trusting and caring classroom approach, a sense of efficacy among teacher and student, early academic success, conceptual understanding, and developing intrinsic motivation and love of learning. Alternative certification teachers were asked about their own experiences in the classroom and provided feedback on some of things they have learned.
