Teaching Career Help
Where Can Teachers Get Help?
Every teacher, whether old or new, will need some type of help. One key to a successful career as a teacher is networking with other teachers and education staff. Most of your teaching problems and questions have been handled before.
Making friends, interacting, and networking with successful teaching staff can enhance your career as a teacher. Don't make the mistake of not getting help. All teachers need it.
So, what are the best sources for help at a teachers fingertips?
The resource teacher should be the first teacher you get to know. They also know of teaching workshops and seminars you can attend.
Resource teachers are truly the most valuable resource a teacher can have. Many teachers do not even know the plethora of teaching information these resource teachers have.
From individual student instruction, to contacting parents, almost any teaching concern you can think of, resources teachers have this information at their finger tips. And if they don't, they will most assuredly know how and where to get it.
The teacher next door
If you get to know them on a regular basis, you can trade ideas and teaching tips and tricks. Where can you go when you need that emergency lesson plan? Or a piece of chalk? Paper?
Teachers should rely on each other. You yourself should have teaching supplies and materials that can be shared on a moments notice. This may not work for every grade and subject, but teachers have been known to take a problem student off your hands for a while. This teacher-to-teacher relationship works both ways. Strive to become the teacher that other teachers can get help from. Teachers, you are in this together.
The wise teacher of the school
Teachers can get quite a bit of help from the office staff. They know all the procedures, where teaching supplies are, and where to get them. Teachers can get student parent contact information from them, as well as help in finding and using the many forms you as a teacher will need.
Normally they have various channels to get you what you need. That is, if you know them on a personal basis! Make life easy on them as well. Leave your classroom in good working order.
