Since I am still going through the process of getting my teaching credential, I am looking for recommendations on books, or simply advices for how to deal with the first few years of teaching without losing my faith. I found this book, The New Teacher Book, published by Rethinking Schools, and have found it to be a balm for the sores I have already developed as a student teacher. What can you add to my search for support for a beginner teacher?

The First Days of School by Harry K. Wong and Rosemary T. Wong has some really good incites to the beginning of the year with your students. It covers a broad range of subjects. It will help you set up the routines in your classroom. I saw the videos for the book quite a few years ago. They were helpful.
Thank you Justine! I will check it out.
I thought of another one that I enjoyed reading more than the one I previously suggested. It is called Teaching Outside of the Box: How to Grab Your Students by Their Brains by LouAnne Johnson. You will love that read! The other book I suggested is very practical and lays things out so nicely. (It is kind of dry though.) Whereas, this one is excellent!
Hi Justine,
I hope you had a great Christmas holiday! I have added your recommended book to my wish list and have received it as a gift! I can't wait to read it!
That is great! I did have a wonderful Christmas Holiday! I hope you are enjoying yours, as well! I believe that you will love the book.
I hope you'll read my new book, Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age. It takes an optimistic view of what we can accomplish with inspired, collaborative teaching using new technologies.
Learn more at the Reinventing blog. The book and the blog chronicle the adventures and tap into the thinking of some of the best educators around.
Hi Jane,
Thanks for the recommendation. I will definitely put it on my Must Read list!
