Over the past month I’ve been collecting questions from first year teachers. I then sought out experienced teachers to answer those questions and share their best teaching advice. I was blown away by the response I received for this project and can’t wait to share the final products of it with you.
I received such an overwhelming response from the teacher community! Because of this response, I turned the answers into two different booklets rather than just a blog post.
Within each document I’ve linked to the Instagram accounts and blogs of all the teachers that participated and submitted answers. Use those links to connect with experienced, encouraging, and inspiring teachers. Everyone that participated has a passion for teaching and truly wants to help other teachers.
In each document I’ve also included a Table of Contents. The Table of Contents contains links to the various sections of topics within the document. For example, if you want to read about behavior management first, simply click “Behavior & Classroom Management” from the Table of Contents. The document will go directly to the desired section with the behavior and classroom management related questions.
In the answers to each question a bullet point denotes an answer from a different teacher.
Within the middle school document answers are in order of increasing experience levels. This means that generally speaking the first answer is from a teacher with one year of experience. From there, the middle answers are from teachers with 5+ years of experience and the last answers are from teachers with 10+ years of experience. Because of this volume of response and time constraints the elementary document is not organized the same way.

Save and share these documents. Use them as a resource when you have a question or simply need some inspiration. As always, if you have any questions don’t hesitate to get in touch with me via email or over on Instagram. Enjoy!
