I'll try to keep this page updated with items I find geared towards new teachers. There are a lot of resources out there. Feel free to link some yourself on the discussion page below or in a blog post of your own!

Edutopia's group: Bridges: The First Years of Practice


I recommend reading just about everything this website puts out, but their new teacher's group has a few nice little posts specifically geared to us newbies.

If you're involved in any sort of language art-related subject area, you need to check out ReadWriteThink.org which is run by NCTE. It has a ton of wonderful free resources for use.

teaching is about connecting. I Try to built a good positive relation with my students from day one. I Get to know them. I Treat every student as if he is my best customer. I like to make them feel comfortable. I know the word customer is in business but we teachers mean business too. I try to make it my business that my students will get all the help and support I can provide them.

Theoretically, we work in a job that…See More
