Teacher Wisdom

I am joining Deb from Fabulously First on a Teacher Wisdom linky party.

Fabulously First

I have been teaching for 10 years.  Every year I am still learning new things to help me be the best teacher I can be.  I was very lucky my first year of teaching and had an amazing mentor.  

Here are my Teacher Wisdom for newbies.

Also, I wanted to thank everyone who has given me an award recently!!  Thank you for thinking of me.  I feel so honored!!!

  1. Come check out my blog! I have nominated you for two awards!

  2. That's great advice about concentrating on one subject area/goal a year. It's so tempting to try and be great at everything:) My goal next year is writing.

  3. Thanks for sharing your wisdom. I am starting my fourth year of teaching and it still seems like just yesterday that I started! I have nominated you for some blog awards on my site. Thanks for being a visitor to my site. I follow and love yours.

  4. Both are excellent words of wisdom! After all these years, I still pick an area each year to refine even more. And I'm still asking questions...really great advice!


  5. Love that last one. It's ALWAYS my first bit of advice too!

  6. I couldn't agree more April about focusing on one subject at a time and "perfecting" it. I did that and it helped oh SO much!

  7. Thanks for the great advice, April! I still consider myself a newbie - going into my 3rd year. :-)

  8. Great advise!! I'm going to year 4 and I still have to force myself not to try and "perfect" too much at one time. Also, I am late to the blogger awards but I wanted to let you know I have given you the Versatil Blogger award! Come on by to pick it up :)

  9. Hey! I nominated you for an award. Stop by my blog to pick it up!

  10. Thanks for the great advice! I am a first year teacher and will definitely need to remind myself to do the first one. I try to be a perfectionist, but it rarely happens. I think this year I will focus on implementing the Daily 5 to perfection. Of course I will still strive to be a fantastic math, science and social studies teacher, but know that I have plenty of years to perfect those subjects, too!

    I can't wait to read more on your blog!
