This week I want to start out with a little shameless self-promotion! Our TV program Teaching Channel Presents
debuts tomorrow, September 23, on public television stations around the country.
I’ll be hosting 20 new episodes, starting with a very special one where we follow two first-year teachers in Los Angeles. “The New Teacher Experience” gives you a nitty-gritty look at their challenges, failures, and successes. We’ll also see the teachers working with mentors as they strive to improve their practice.
I think this will really resonate with the teachers newest to our profession and remind all of us veterans the importance of being a positive mentor for our newest colleagues.
Here’s a sneak peek:
