New to Our Profession? Here Are 30 Links to Resources Which Help You in Your Job

If you're reading this post for information, congratulations! In a time where so many teachers have lost their jobs, you are very fortunate to have been hired for the 2011-2012 school year! Help is right around the corner. (or should I say paragraph?) The best advice I can give you is to find a mentor (someone who has been teaching at least 4 years or more) and use that person's knowledge and experience to assist you. Take it one day at a time and be prepared to work. Here's a great quote a colleague of mine posted recently: "The mediocre teacher tells. The good teacher explains. The superior teacher demonstrates. The great teacher inspires."-William Arthur Ward.  (Thanks, Brenda!)  Best of luck and go inspire your students!
