Fun in 4th- Linky Party!

Fun in 4th Grade is having a linky party to give advice to new teachers. Here are my words of wisdom.
*Try not to get caught up in the drama at school. The 1st person who comes to you and talks about other staff member is the number 1 person you cannot trust.
*Email your parents once a week with what is going on the classroom. They love to know what their kids are learning about at school.
*Be flexible!
*Have a back up plan if something doesn't go correctly!
*My most important piece of advice is to remember you have a life outside of school. That can be hard to follow.


  1. Thanks for linking up! You are SO right about gossips. My momma used to say to me "If that dog will bring YOU a bone, they will take that bone someplace else too" which basically means if they talk about other people to you, they will talk about you to other people. Great advice!

  2. Oh yes! Getting caught up in the drama. I agree, it's good to avoid that. And having a life out of school is important but so hard to do sometimes.
    I love the look of your blog (I'm a West Coast girl myself :))
