This week I would like you to use your imagination. You have just won the lottery and will leave your teaching post immediately to travel around the world. As you leave your keys you meet your replacement. You are asked to give this new teacher just ONE piece of advice. What would that be, and why? Enjoy your world expedition!

Blog Post - Week 7

Hello and Good Luck

Hello NTI Class!
Just wanted to say hello to you and wish you well. I had sent a blog during the summer to welcome you but you hadn't been introduced to the blogging site yet. So I will take the opportunity to do so now. Welcome!

I "graduated" from NTI in May and now have my full-fledged clear and renewable teaching certificate. I teach Healthcare Science at Ola High School in McDonough. You are well on your way already to learning many, many wonderful things about teaching. I have been reading some of your blogs and sounds like several of you are already putting your newly learned skills to good use. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to go to NTI because it certainly has made a huge difference in my life.

NTI is hard work but you will be so happy that you stuck with it. Dr Burns and Jessie are just the best! The absolute best! Learn all you can from them. Fasten your seat belts and enjoy the ride! And if I can ever help any of you with anything please don't hesitate to ask. Good Luck!

Connie Dial, RN
