On Thursday of this week, I arrived at my class to learn all about the PLC's by our district superintendent and the PLC coach. As exciting as this class may be at times (cough cough) it is something we as teachers should be aware of and can really help our future teaching. One thing that really hit me was this list that was read about the top 8 tips for beginning teachers, as well as good tips in general for teachers. I will definitely keep this list with me and for those who do not have it, I feel this is very motivating!
1. Love Education! (what it truly comes down to…the kids!)
2. Find those that'll help you.
3. Pick and choose the news you read.
4. Know your limits.
5. Never close your door.
7. Pick your battles.
8. Don't get sucked in negatively!
