Advice to new teachers

January Blog Challenge 6) What advice can you give a new teacher as to the priority or focus for energy as they begin their careers?

Don’t forget to make yourself and your well being a priority.  Don’t overextend yourself.  Don’t be afraid to say no to requests to serve on committees.  It takes a while to settle in and it can be extremely stressful so do what you need to do to be the best teacher you can be for your students, that means taking care of you!
