I know that as first year teachers, we all have a great deal on our plate. And some worries and concerns weigh bigger on our minds than others. What are your biggest concerns as a first year teacher? Mine vary depending on the day and how much I thought I but into it all...LOL I think my three biggest worries are: 1. Not being able to adequately get across the subject matter so that the kids actually learn something. 2. Not passing the General Knowledge exam and end up losing my certification. 3. Not getting my contract renewed for next school year. I think everything else I can deal with it as it comes.
