The first week of school for high school teachers is often like a whirlwind! New schedules, building student relationships, new initiatives, lesson plans, learning new content, attending meetings, parent orientations, open-houses, professional developments, setting-up classrooms, organizing files, books, supplies....the list is endless! Hence, teacher self-care during this time is key, which is why I created First Week of School Talking Points: High School Teachers to do some of the prep work for teachers---help manage the work load. It serves as a guide post to help high school teachers gather their thoughts to create sound classroom climates. This e-book will offer the type of support that is essential to starting the school year well... as it is a known fact that a teacher that begins the school year strong is way more likely to find sustained success than those who do not.
