Hello, I am a pre-service

Hello,

I am a pre-service teacher. I love the tips you have given, as a pre-service teacher I get really excited seeing tips that will help me transition into my first year of teaching. The one tip that caught my eye was 'Ask for help' often times I hear about first year teachers coming into the classroom with so much energy that they try and take on the role of superman. Education is all about collaborating and sharing ideas, so never be afraid to ask for help especially from experienced teachers who have been down that road.

People considering teaching as a career must have a growth-mindset, be organized, and enjoy being with people because it entails relationship-building. And this is just the tip of the iceberg! :-)

I thank you for the tips you

I thank you for the tips you have given us, educators, for the beginning of a new sholastic year. as an educator in Egypt, I think it's very informative to connect wih other colleagues around the world. I thin this will benefit me in many ways to be able to learn from other colleagues. I wish I can connect with you to learn more about how to make our schools more intereting, vigorous and exciting.

Is it possible to have a true collaborative classroom if the students are forced to take your class? This dynamic creates an explicit power hierarchy which will undermine all of these well intentioned efforts. These efforts are absolutely commendable and may well make a student's experience a better one, but let's think outside the box; if its collaboration that we truly want, then classes to be taken need to be selected collaboratively, not mandated.

Thank for the jump start! Inspiring article with helpful tips. I am pleased that the emphasis was not entirely on technolgy. We forgot too often that it is all about people and the positive relationships we build. Now, I have got to run and start memorizing student names and pictures!

Love it!

Great suggestions for the new school year! Many educators on My Big Campus have grown their PLNs and collaboration with parents. But nothing beats reaching out with a phone call or special note. And then communities on platforms like My Big Campus can grow even more. :) Thanks!
