So I always share things from the Free Technology for Teachers site. (Click here for that site). One thing I saw there recently is a shared document of tips for new teachers he crowdsourced to generate. He ended up with 43 tips that I will share:
It includes some great tips for not only new teachers, but great reminders/ideas for the rest of us. My favorite:
Don’t be afraid to create the most amazing lesson plan and promptly throw it in the recycling bin when you see it isn’t working.

Good luck in the new school year to you all!
