The life of a new teacher is full of unfamiliar experiences and questions. There are so many issues facing you as a new teacher that you might wonder what you are doing in this profession.
Our first suggestion is that you ask a veteran teacher in your school. Why? Well, this person will know the exact situation you are facing. They also know your principal, the politics of the school, the curriculum, and the unwritten rules of the school and as such will be a better resource of information.
However, we often find that new teachers are in a situation where a veteran teacher is not available or willing to help. This is why we have provided these mentoring services. Please feel free to use the message boards, sign up for one of our discussion lists, and utilize our "Ask a Mentor" services.
Also, don't forget about our book, Survival Kit for New Teachers
, which offers practical answers to most of the questions and challenges faced by new teachers. It was written to be a source of help and guidance right there in your classroom. No matter what your question or issue, we are here to help!
Our goal is to offer you a variety of resources to help answer those questions and issues you are facing in the classroom. We hope you find them helpful.
Ask A Mentor
Our mentor is here to help you with your classroom questions! This service has become very popular which means that we often get backlogged with questions. We will answer your question as quickly as we can. Please be patient.
Please note that this mentor service is for classroom and teaching questions only. We do not research answers for university assignments or projects.
Our discussion lists are a great way for you to network and share with other teachers right in your in-box. Rather than remembering to check your post on a message board, all posts are emailed to everyone on the list. Members can then delete or reply to the messages through their email.
