The Busy Educator's Monthly Five...
by Marjan Glavac
Each month Marjan Glavac, professional speaker, teacher and author of The Busy Educator's Guide To The World Wide Web 2ND EDITION (Foreword by Dr. Harry Wong author of The First Days Of School) presents The Busy Educator's Monthly Five -- five websites for educators that are easy to read, simple to use and worthwhile to know.

Sites For Beginning Teachers Part 2

Here are five websites to help Beginning Teachers.

Teacher Talk
Good short articles for beginning (and experienced ) teachers and the first day of school. Go Volume 1, Issue 2 and take the questionnaire "What is your classroom management profile?" and determine your classroom management profile. You may be surprised!

Teachers Helping Teachers
A lot of tips from fellow teachers. Check out the Classroom Management link and other resources. Post a question in the very active guest book/forum.

Teachers.Net Beginning Teachers ChatBoard
Here's a very popular place for beginning teachers to network with other colleagues, share stories and seek the knowledge needed to teach well.

U.S. Department of Education
"What to Expect Your First Year of Teaching" contains a number of tips on such topics as Tips and Strategies from First-Year Teachers, The Kids, Veteran Teachers Talk, Final Thoughts and Additional Resources, and A Checklist of Tips.

Elementary School Teachers
Click on the link to the New Teachers section for links to tips and articles.

I am currently booking keynote dates for the months of July and August. If you know of any upcoming events that I could present a keynote for teachers entitled "Burn Bright or Burn Out- Motivating Teachers for Life" on how teachers can attain their goals, manage information overload and do what it takes to be a great teacher, please let me know. I really appreciate your support.
