New Teacher Book

Don't know where to start?

I've written this free new teacher book to help you get into your classroom and feel successful!


This handbook contains many of the questions that new teachers ask.

"What do I do on the first day of school?"

"What procedures do I need to start with?"

"That one kid is driving me crazy... what do I do?"

It is also full of tips to start off successfully and ways to survive your first year.

I've been working with new teachers for over a decade... and almost every new teacher has the same questions, worries and stress.

This book is a collection of all the questions from over the years and answers to help you start off on the right foot.

It's written in a casual, realistic style - with lots of stories sprinkled in - to help you see that you're not alone and you can succeed!

You will laugh and learn while gaining valuable information.

It's an easy read, a good tool to refer back to over and over, and, most of all, fun.


Not every idea will help every teacher, but this is a guide to being prepared, looking professional and surviving the first few years of teaching with a smile on your face.

If you think this might be what you need, sign up below.

If you know someone who might need this book, please be sure to send it to them too.

I will not use your email address for anything other than sending you this free book.

The book is a .pdf file - so if you think a friend could benefit from it - send it on.

Let's work together to make schools the best they can be!
