So I finally just got hired as an elementary art teacher after searching for about a year. I am really excited about this opportunity but I am also a little nervous. I was just wondering if any fellow art teachers can give me any advice on being a first year art teacher. I just I am more nervous about getting things together for september. I am sharing a room with another art teacher so the room is set up already. Im thinking in terms of lesson plans. Do I spend the rest of the summer planning for the whole year or the first few months? I am unsure of what else I should be doing to prepare for the school year. The principal has not said anything yet about ordering art supplies so im guessing they have some from the other teacher or might talk to me about it closer to the school year. But what kinds of office materials should i invest in? Any advice will be helpful.
