Beginning Teaching—Classroom Must Haves for New Teachers
So, the top 20 things “must haves” for your drama classroom–There are so many things to think about when you are a beginning teacher. I remember my first year as an English teacher (which was a minor of mine in college.) Since I never student taught in English, I knew very little of what I needed for my classroom. Teachers weren’t as team oriented as they are now and I was on my own to figure out everything.
Now new teachers have a mentor at their school who shows them the ropes of teaching in their school. The first three years of a teacher’s career are the most pivotal. If you “stick” in the job, you’ll probably continue teaching for many years.
But you see, I’m stubborn.
Even though I was completely on my own I wouldn’t give up. Truthfully, it really did take until the third year for me to find my groove. It was a tough experience for me, but I gained so much knowledge from those years. I learned about teaching, but I also learned about myself. (Oh, and my first husband walked out on me two days before my first day of school that first year. Did I mention that?)
So, what does this all have to do with the “must haves “of a drama classroom?
