Many of you are closing out (or have already wrapped up) the school year, breathing a sigh of relief, and hoping to get some much needed rest and relaxation.
As you reflect back on the school year, what memorable moments come to mind? Perhaps a breakthrough with a student you couldn’t connect with, a “perfect day” field trip where everything including the weather cooperated, or simply a smile and a thank you from a graduate?
In this week’s newsletter, we celebrate the joys of teaching and recognize that struggle is a healthy part of growing. While you watch, we hope you'll find yourself saying, “Oh, yeah, something like that happened to me!”
And we’re also excited to introduce a new blog series: The New Teacher Survival Guide
. Look for advice on getting classroom materials, lesson planning, setting up your classroom, and more. We’re here to allay fears and stoke up excitement for the coming school year.Teacher Laureate at Teaching Channel
