Wait, wait, don’t tell me!
It’s August 15th, and you’ve spent the summer thinking you were teaching three preps of 9th grade English and two of 12th grade English.
A voicemail from your principal this morning tells you she’s SO SORRY, but you’ll be switching to 10th and 11th. See you in a week!
Or, wait… stop me if this one is familiar:
You’re a student teacher, and this whole teaching thing isn’t quite what you expected. I mean, you LOVE it. But your timing is just… off. You need something at the ready, so you’re not stuck at the front of the classroom like a deer in headlights.
Hold on… how about this one? You’ve been teaching 10th grade English for more years than your current students have been alive. If you have to read that last scene in Of Mice and Men one more time, you’re going to lose it.
If any of these scenarios describe you, welcome! I hope you find The Oh Sh*t Toolkit very useful. In the meantime, here are some of my favorite resources from those early, middle, and later days of teaching.
And by the way, thank you for doing what you do.
