Hi everyone, I am a new secondary teacher. First semester I will be teaching freshmen and sophomore students. I'm really nervous about the first day(s) of school and was wondering if you guys could give me some suggestions. Classes are 75 minutes long. I'm not sure if I should do icebreakers on the first day, the best way to handle seating arrangements/plans (I'll be moving from classroom to classroom so I won't be re-arranging the desks), how I should start into the content, etc. I'm really nervous about getting started off on the right foot. If you have any advice or could share some details about how you start the first day and week of school, I would really appreciate it. I realize there is a New Teachers forum but I thought this section would be most appropriate for this post since it's specific to secondary. TIA!
