Overview

Stepping into the classroom for the first time as a teacher can be an intimidating experience. According to the National Commission on Teaching and America’s Future, nearly half of all new teachers leave the profession after just five years. This doesn’t have to include you — love your job and be great at it with this complete guide to sidestepping common blunders. You have all your credentials; now go one step further and prevent those embarrassing mishaps.

199 Mistakes New Teachers Make and How to Prevent Them was written to help any elementary or secondary teacher recognize and avoid every common pitfall and enjoy the first year and beyond. Whether it’s letting your students see your fear, disciplining too harshly, not disciplining enough, embarrassing students, violating the boundaries of your role as teacher, forgetting the staff hierarchy, accidentally disrespecting your superiors, or not communicating expectations effectively, you have a lot to learn yourself! This book teaches the best way to communicate in order to avoid mistakes and gain respect from your students and coworkers from day one.

You will also learn about each student age group, every type coworker you will encounter, every position in your district, and how to find a mentor. This book explains federal laws and regulations for each type of school, how to gain confidence, and ways to connect with your students and colleagues. First-year teachers will learn how to deal with supplies, planning, parents, overcrowded classrooms, the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act, piles of paperwork, money shortages due to budget cuts, negativity from students and other staff members, at-risk students, special needs students, and students who are capable but unmotivated.

We have spent hundreds of hours interviewing first-year and veteran teachers, principals, and staff to give you the inside scoop on common blunders and ways to keep them from happening again. For anyone who has already made a minor misstep, this book will help you recover from it. Start your teaching career the right way with this in-depth guide on recognizing, avoiding, and recovering from first-year mistakes.
