Advice for my replacement!
I believe the best piece of advice that I could give to a new teacher that is replacing me is: Don't take yourself too seriously!! Now, with that being said, I don't mean that our jobs aren't serious. What I do mean is that some days are going to be great and some days are going to be not so great. Some lessons are going to be a home run and some lessons are going to be a disaster. You just have to roll with the punches. Don't let those less than stellar times get to you. If you take yourself too seriously and expect yourself to always be perfect, you will burn yourself out in no time. The best thing that I have ever done in my short teaching career is to relax and have fun. This has allowed me to enjoy my job more than I ever imagined. I can assure you that my students enjoy a more relaxed me as well!
