Kindergarten Teacher (but not Special Education) in Lake Worth:
"First Yer Teachers."
You are not just a teacher, you are a student. The amount of paperwork, lesson plans, record keeping, etc. Seems overwhelming. Find a master teacher at your work place who will take you under her/his wing. Having a mentor show you the ropes of the not-teaching part of the job is crucial. Stick with it. The pay off is amazing, even if the pay isn't.

Kindergarten Teacher (but not Special Education) in Sugar Land:
"Hidden Job Requirements."
Always ask these two questions before accepting the job: How many mandatory hours will be required for this position beyond the classroom hours? (i.e., programs, staff meetings, teacher training, fundraisers, carnivals, dinners, parties, etc, etc.) Next, what amount has been set aside for a classroom budget (or will I have to spend my own money?)

Kindergarten Teacher (but not Special Education) in Bruington:
"Standards Of Learning Need An Overhaul."
When I first started this career, I thought teaching would be fun, but the SOLs have taken all the joy out of teaching. Until parents are held accountable for student achievement and school accreditation, the SOLs will never be a fair and accurate measure of a teacher's job performance.
