Student Teaching -
Grade Level(s): K, 1-2, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12
Submitted by: Alice

As a peer teacher for several years, I have one major suggestion: communicate! Being new to our profession, you should have a million questions--each day new ones and some you want to ask several times. Do not be afraid to ask. Ask how the school prefers handling situations. If in doubt about something happening under your supervision, tell a seasoned teacher (in our county, your peer teacher)a.s.a.p. Do not be afraid to teach in your style or adapt suggestions to meet your style. Remember that you are in a classroom to help the students and that other teachers and administrators are there to help you. Nothing is accomplished without communication. I suggest my beginning teachers set up a resource binder with tabs where they can begin organizing tips, websites, shared worksheets, procedural information, etc. Always remember that sometimes it seems as though teachers are scrutinized for every action, every minute, by everyone.
