Sharing Wisdom

I have been teaching for almost 18 years and have definitely learned a thing or two (thousand) that could help new teachers just starting out. I knew I had to join the linky party at Fabulously First, so I could share one of the things I do every single year that always puts me ahead of the game.

Trust me - it works! You can link up, too, by clicking on the image above. I can't wait to read all the great advice!

Here's another fun linky party to check out! Tori, from Tori's Teacher Tips, is challenging everyone to do something really silly. You can check it out here:

The winner of her contest stands to win some really great prizes! I am looking forward to seeing all the pictures.


  1. AMEN!! I agree! Makes you stop and think sometimes too.

  3. Ah, the golden rule. It's amazing how easy it is to tell the students to be nice to each other...and then the opposite can happen at staff meetings...LOL. Gotta love it. ;)

  6. Thank you so much for your thoughtful advice! I will be a new teacher this year (2nd grade) and am enjoying reading all of the advice from the expert teachers! I will definitely carry these words of wisdom with me as I begin my new journey!

    That's So Second Grade
