Advice for a new teacher
I’ve decided to start working on a dream I’ve had for a LONG time, one that had to wait until just the right program came along, and through a friend, I’ve found it, the perfect Ed. D program!
As I begin my coursework, I’m currently reading an article about the careful balance between content knowledge, curricular knowledge, and teacher examination.
One idea that was proposed in the article that I’m reading was about was practical experience. How on earth do you asses that on a teacher examination for licensure?
It made me wonder though, what practical experience would you give a new teacher that isn’t represented in any undergrad coursework, textbook, or even student teaching experience? What are those little things you do each and everyday that make your classroom hum along?
I can’t wait to hear what you have to share!
