The first years of practice can be a time of great hope and exhilaration -- and fatigue and anxiety. This group is designed to allow new teachers and veterans alike to connect and share that sense of community that is so important in the first years.

Hello All,

I know as new,pre-service or new to the profession teachers,it might seem as though it's too hard to do everything, AND focus on current national discussions. I know that at times, I felt like that too. But...the times they are a change'in! This topic is too important to not pay attention to as a newbie!

DO try to to take the time and tune in to the EducationNation discussions going on LIVE on the web at

If not LIVE, grab a cup of coffee,or tea, or ? and settle in for a bit with the archived sessions.
One, today 9/27 in particular, aired in the PM ET was quite good. It included a variety of panelists with diverse view points.

After you've watched...don't forget to head over to Betty Ray's group and weigh in your opinion here at
