So I'm a first year teacher; I just graduated with my master's degree in May. Yesterday, I interviewed for and accepted a position teaching 10th grade English to replace a teacher who is leaving and returning to his home state. I will sign my paperwork for the district on Monday and start teaching on Tuesday. Do you have any tips or suggestions to make the transition of coming into a school part way through the year easier? I'm feeling like I'd almost need to treat it like the first day of school all over again.
