Did you know that Discovery Education has a whole site dedicated to helping new teachers survive? And it’s actually not a bad resource for us old pros too. From technology to homeroom to recycling glue sticks, there is a wealth of information and resources to help you have a productive year. And there is a sweepstakes where the grand prize winner gets a trip to Costa Rica (among a few other things) and the referring teacher wins a trip to a professional development conference of their choosing. Take a look at the site and recommend it to a new teacher or any of your colleagues.
