This Week in TchAUSL: November 24, 2013

Hello again!

You may have seen this chart that was developed several years ago by New Teacher Center that shows how attitudes about teaching change in first-year teachers. When I share this graph with experienced teachers, they often relate and still experience these stages during the year. You may notice in the chart that we are now at “disillusionment,” or the low ebb of the year.

Do you have the November blues? Let’s try to remedy that with some useful and inspiring resources!
