Everything You Need to Know to Survive and Thrive as a New Elementary School Teacher This is the book that I wish had existed when I was training to become a new teacher and taking over my first classroom. There was SO much to learn! And so much conflicting advice... it drove me crazy to think that I couldn't find the most-critical information in one place.

Well, I've taken care of that for you! In Achieving Classroom Confidence, I explain:

  • Things they will never tell you in college about the way the education system really works.
  • How to act as a new teacher so children want to learn from you.
  • The fundamentals of getting children to behave.
  • The basics of setting up your room effectively without spending too much time or money.
  • How to schedule, plan and deliver your lessons.
  • And a thousand other details I wish someone had told me so I didn't have to learn them all the hard way!
Shortcut Your Success by Learning from My Experience

And from my mistakes!

This is the book for first-time teachers starting new jobs and pre-service teachers who are just beginning their education journeys.

The new teacher phase is a time of intense learning - a critical time for laying a foundation that will ensure you thrive in this profession rather than burning out and leaving. I want you to stay, because you are desperately needed by children, but you have to know what you are getting yourself into.

In short, if you have made a commitment to becoming not just a teacher, but an awesome, life-changing teacher...

This the book for you.
