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.

Thanks for these inpirational tools! How might a new teacher prioritize all of this? If I could go back 20 years to when I was a new teacher, I would say relationships are first....tuning into who students are and what their needs and interests are. Other ideas?

Hi Ruth,

Great question! I did the webinar presentation for the ASCD Summer Boot Camp Series in June with that idea in mind of course.
(Link to my webinar presentation http://www.ascd.org/professional-development/webinars/lisa-dabbs-webinar...)
I do have to agree with you! My key points were focused on building relationships and developing good communication skills. Doing that with your colleagues and developing that with the students and families that you serve.
That must come first, along with having a mentor to guide them and insure that they do self reflection on-going. Then they can begin to take a few tools at a time and engage with them for support in their work.
Here is the collaborative G-doc link, I created to be used after viewing the webinar https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fajjB82w7XAUQWPSsuB5zA5HPYAWs9-h4bWV...
Would love to get your feedback if you use the webinar materials!
Thanks!
