Tips for New Teachers


This is the end of first week of school for many Georgia students. It is also the end of the first week of school for many of Georgia's new teachers. It has been an exciting and challenging week for both groups with many stories to share.

Stories are meant for sharing. It is a win-win situation when experienced classroom teachers and educators share what they have learned with new teachers. Mentoring and support from peers can make all the difference to a teacher during that important first year in the classroom. Success for teachers also means success for students.

The Georgia Graduation Stories blog would like to post your tips for new teachers. You can send your tips by email to:
