Teachers help beginning teachers with their best tips.



Beth Maloney, NBCT
Fifth Grade English/Language Arts and Social Studies, Dysart Unified School District


Just keep doing your best each day. Yes, the learning curve is steep, but the truth is, 16 years later, you're still learning! To teach is to learn.



Greg Broberg
Sixth Grade Humanities, Kyrene School District


To set realistic expectations. When I was a first year teacher I thought I knew so much. It would have been much more rewarding if I would have had several important tools in my teaching toolbox and then used them wisely.



Cherie Stafford
TIPS (Technology In Practice Specialist)


Be open and look for ways to change a plan, process, idea, or conviction. The ability to recognize the necessity for this change does not indicate failure, but wisdom.


LeAnna Wolkis Goldstein
Kindergarten, Paradise Valley Unified School District

To be patient with myself. Pick one thing a day that is important to implement into your classroom, set up cooperative learning tables, use music throughout the day, build a classroom community from day one, remember your smile might be the only one your kiddos see that day.



Marcy North
Reading Lab, Flowing Wells School District


You can’t do it all — so choose two things that you would like work on.



Molly Reed, NBCT
Outdoor Learning Teacher K-5, Tucson Unified School District


Less is more.



Sara Wyffels
High School Spanish, Chandler Unified School District


Collaborate more. Even if it is with teachers from different subject areas. This will save you from stress and from time spent worrying about if you are doing the right thing or not.



Karl Ochsner
Seventh and Eighth Grade STEM/1:1 Learning Coordinator, Diocese of Phoenix


Time is your worst enemy! Lesson plans don't need to look like it is going to be published. (Put the effort in creating things that will effect your students.) Next year, you will be less pressured, but still have little time. Year three is the charm. Year four: Change things up to make your classroom more interesting and fresh.
