FINAL BLOG POST - OUR "DAILY TRIPLE" (DUE 12/1).
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!
First off, I would like to say that I am ELATED to win the lottery and get the opportunity to travel the world! As I am leaving my keys and I see the new teacher, the one piece of advice I would give them is to roll with the punches. My reasoning for this advice is because the world of teaching is full of surprises, whether it is from the students' behavior and/or grades, or from administration springing new things on you. Also, because the first year can be daunting so if a teacher is prepared to let any and everything roll off their back, they will have a much more successful year. I wish that someone would have told me this information and I could have saved myself days, weeks, and months of anxiety.
