    I think if you have passion for what you do, stay motivated to learning something new everyday, and love the learning process then y ou're off to a great start. Methods and Materials classes are especiallyhelpful, make sure yu get some good training in behavior management as well. :haha:

    My suggestions are to take advantage of on-line lesson plans and ideas. Borrow any and ALL colleagues lessons that they are willing to share. Don't try to correct every single paper, but at the same time, if you assign it, make it meaningful. Don't try to do or try everything your first year, just try to do the best you can to stay afloat. Remember that if you have a crummy year this year, next year is a brand new slate. Remember that if you have a good year this year, not to get complacent, because every class is different. As much as you can, leave your job at school and enjoy your downtime at home. Get to know your students individually and make comments to them based on that knowledge. Don't let them see you sweat, but if you make a mistake, admit it or they will nail you for lying. Before you throttle a kid for asking how to do something that you have already explained three times, take a deep breath and know that that child really does need the help. It's okay to walk away for a minute to get your composure if you need to...
    Oh I am full of little anecdotes. Hope some help!!

    You've been given great advice thus far.... and this is a great place to learn more. What grade level are you most interested in working with.

    My best advice is to learn, learn, and learn some more. I think what separates a good teacher from an ok teacher is the ability to bring life experience into the classroom, so make connections between things and make them relevant to your students.

    Have you ever volunteered or worked with children in a school setting at all? If not, give it a shot.

    Good luck to you.
