New Teacher Journal- Before the First Day

Often we step into a teaching situation with an idea about how it will go. We have created a story in our mind. But, when we show up on that first day with students sitting in front of us… and the story doesn’t play out like it did in our daydreams… what do we do?

This is the first set of journal starters for new teachers. These will get some of the story out of our head and onto paper. Another infographic (coming soon) or two will delve into what happens when we need to adapt the story.

The clickable text is partially serious and partially for your amusement…
