A new study has found that 75% of teacher-education programs at colleges in the United States do a poor job of preparing teachers for a career in the classroom. You can read an article about the study here:

Luckily, the Internet can fill in any gaps that universities may have missed! My favorite is http://www.newteacherhelp.com which has tons of free resources and articles to help new teachers survive in the classroom! You can also find free stuff to help you here:

There is such a large number of resources available to help new teachers...resources that did not exist five years ago! Enjoy!
