When you start teaching, there seems to be so much going in both inside and outside the classroom. Even the simple things can seem difficult. Like giving instructions. Seems straight-forward, right? Not always. There’s no other way to get good at teaching than to try, fail, and try again. Having a little help along the way can make a big difference, too.

We've got books.

We know how difficult it can be to have someone hand you a set of keys and say “Here’s your classroom. Good luck.” That’s why we want to share resources from our friends that we know will help you. Check it out! 

Mental Health.

You are not alone. You are not alone. You are not alone.

Maintaining your mental health in the midst of a school year can be challenging. It’s not just the kids, the grading, and the extra hours. There are stressors all around you and they can be magnified by the accumulated fatigue that comes with the job.

Take care of yourself. You deserve it. 

Our podcast.

Listen to real teachers and educators share their experiences and wisdom. Hosted by our very own Erin Patton, she finds the voices that make us pay attention. Hear these educators’ stories of how they got into education, what it means to them, and their hearts for kids. We leave every conversation feeling better, we hope you will too.  

Say something.

Our teaching community wants and needs to hear your voice. Take a moment and write a letter, sent to you as a first-year teacher, sharing your encouragement and experience. Say those words that you desperately needed to hear. We’ll all be better for it. Just click below to get started!
