Do not be afraid to take notes during your first year as a teacher.

Anyways… I’m excited to see what this EdCamp collaboration is all about. In the CADRE program, we are encouraged to collaborate with other teachers, both new and experienced, to find out what is working and what isn’t. This first year of teaching has been one of learning experiences and self-discovery. I had these really fabulous ideas about how to run my classroom, before I started teaching, but after trying to incorporate them into my classroom, I discovered that my amazing ideas are oftentimes only amazing in my head. So, I go to my cohort of teachers, both at my school and in the CADRE program, and tell them what I tried and ask them what works for them. This process seems to let me practice my independence and creativity, but when something doesn’t work, I can adapt and rely on my network of professionals to find something that does.

It has been the exuberance… and trust… and trials… that these kids — my kids — have spread over my first year of teaching that will forever resonate in my heart.

Teacher Reflection | Memoirs of a First Year Teacher

I remember when I started CADRE, I thought it was going to be a breeze. I was wrong. Looking back, I can see how naive I really was. I had been going to school full-time for quite a while prior to beginning my Master’s program, but it was nothing compared to going to school, raising a family, AND teaching my first year.

P.S. I guess I get to add a new tagline to my blog in a few weeks 🙂 I will no longer be a first year teacher!

First Year Teacher Essay

Teaching is not an 8am to 3pm job. I knew that when I went into the profession, and I am happy to put in hours of extra time developing curriculum, working with colleagues and getting to know my students. However, during my first year, I was astonished by the amount of time I needed to spend on paperwork.

"Fake it ‘til you make it! That was my first year motto. I told my kids that smart kids fix their mistakes and smart teacher do too – that way we ALL felt okay when we made a mistake. Find some good teacher friends to bounce ideas off of and get advice from DAILY."

Welcome to Nathaniel Hawthorne in Salem

"Realize that looking back on your first year, no matter how hard you try, you will always find things you think you did wrong, and that’s okay. Set a time to leave the school and do it. Don’t bring home your work with you and save your weekends for yourself. You will cry. That’s okay. Also, keep a routine and follow through. Empty threats are going to be the death of you. Set high expectations and let the kids know it. Ask for help. Be a teacher not a friend."

I'm not some sort of stepping stone to a larger career, okay? I'm an actual child with a single working mother, and I need to be educated by someone who actually wants to be a teacher, actually comprehends the mechanics of teaching, and won't get completely eaten alive by a classroom full of 10-year-olds within the first two months on the job.
