Vanessa Levin, an award-winning educational consultant who specializes in early childhood education, has published a new book, titled “A Fabulous First Year and Beyond: A Practical Guide for Pre-K and Kindergarten Teachers.”
The book, which guides first-time teachers through a successful school year, provides readers with valuable information and advice to avoid common pitfalls that most teachers new to pre-K and kindergarten encounter. It serves as a resource for both brand-new teachers and those who have been reassigned to teach these grade levels.
“This book can help teachers better understand the unique challenges posed by students in the youngest grade levels,” said Levin. “The first year in pre-K or kindergarten can be tough, even if you have previously taught other grades. My book reveals secrets to a successful first year and beyond, allowing teachers to prepare and avoid surprises so that they never miss a beat.”
While many teaching books don’t focus on particular grade levels, “A Fabulous First Year and Beyond” covers challenges and strategies specific to the youngest children teachers will instruct. Using the book, teachers will learn how to arrange their classrooms, plan lessons, manage their classes, conduct successful parent conferences, communicate effectively with parents and much more.
Levin is a respected and passionate advocate for high-quality early childhood education. She has worked extensively with programs that serve English language learners and at-risk populations for two decades. Throughout her career, Levin has served as a teacher, mentor, curriculum writer, specialist and professional development consultant. In addition to the advice in her book, she shares teaching tips and best practices for preschool, pre-K and kindergarten teachers through her website, http://www.Pre-KPages.com.
“It is my hope that the information in ‘A Fabulous First Year and Beyond’ will serve as ‘the teacher next door’ for those seeking answers to daily classroom challenges,” said Levin. “Teaching is a very difficult job, one of the toughest around. If I can help make one teacher’s job just a little bit easier, then I have succeeded.”
