Greetings everyone, I was speaking with a group of new teachers last week, and we were chatting about the types of support that they need in their beginning years, and the types of support that the district thinks they need. There was a difference! I thought that I would throw the question out to you. What types of support did you find to be most important in your first months/years of practice? Was it emotional support? Was it help with lesson/unit planning? Was it assistance in deciphering the curriculum expectations? Was it advice on classroom management? Where did you find that support? Were there programs in place to help, or did you have to go elsewhere to get what you neede? I would be very interested in getting some response from those of you who are just starting out, as well as those of us who have been around for a bit! Stephen
