One great thing for novices is that there are more free online resources for them than at any other time in our history! Become a member of the online New Teacher Help community on edWeb.net or check out websites with free lesson plans, classroom management tips, or online professional development. It is so comforting to interact with others facing the same challenges to know that you are not alone!
