I just watched "The New Teacher Tool Kit Webinar" and loved it! I am pre-service teacher that will start teaching full-time in the fall. I was wondering if you have advice on how much support to ask for from administrators before the start of the school year. My school is a nonpublic special education school that has a great environment for creativity, but not for structure. I have a conditional license so I didn't go through all of my educational coursework before teaching (I have two years to get them while teaching). My admin have not given me any curriculum guidelines or book suggestions. Should I go ahead and plan a year, or wait till after orientation to ask about what they want me to teach?
