Self-care and teaching tips for new teachers

The joys and pains of starting a teaching career often go undiscussed. This field guide dives deep into the personal side of teaching, offering crucial advice, empathy, and new-teacher support. The author details six phases every new teacher goes through—anticipation, survival, disillusionment, rejuvenation, reflection, and second anticipation—and outlines targeted classroom-management strategies and self-care practices for each.

Transcend the emotional, mental, and physical problems teachers face in the classroom:

  • Understand the feelings and teaching challenges of each phase during a beginning teacher’s career.
  • Practice self-care to combat beginning and first-year teacher stress and burnout; avoid the mental pitfalls that so often lead to teachers changing careers.
  • Learn effective classroom-management strategies for new teachers and how to maintain positive relationships with students.
  • Respond to prompts that will help you process and reflect on your first years’ culmination.
  • Utilize the prompts and journaling spaces throughout the book to reflect on your professional improvements and successes.
