Dear First Year Teacher #1

So, you are getting ready to start teaching and if you were like me, you are freaking out trying to think of EVERYTHING. LOL. Teaching is like anything else, you get better by doing it! However, I wanted to share a series of posts to include so many of the things I wish someone would have told me or that I would have thought of while getting ready that first year. Grab a snack because this will be a long one!

First up in this series is focusing on what to spend your time and money on. Please keep in mind that some things that didn't work for me may 100% work for you. Some things that I swear by, may not be your cup of tea. This is all about knowing yourself and being realistic about what you can manage.
