Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) August 05, 2014
Close to half of new teachers leave the profession within the first five years, and one of the primary reasons cited for quitting is the lack of support and guidance. But now, new educators can find the direction they need in You Can Do This: Hope and Help for New Teachers.
New teachers face numerous challenges. Right from the start they must learn how to manage a class full of restless students; develop productive relationships with fellow teachers, administrators, and parents; and design engaging lesson plans that will meet ever-increasing levels of accountability all while building a life in the process. It can be overwhelming and sometimes teachers can feel like they’re all alone. But You Can Do This: Hope and Help for New Teachers (Wiley; August 2014; Paper format: $19.95) is filled with real-world advice for navigating those difficult years as a beginning teacher.
Sharing stories from her own humbling first years as a new teacher, author Robyn Jackson helps readers tackle challenges such as motivating students, planning effective lessons, building relationships with parents, bouncing back from embarrassing mistakes, and finding your own authority as a teacher.
