    Welcome to the world of education! I am in my 17th year of teaching and I think the one thing I wish I would’ve done in my first few years of teaching is to keep a journal. Log all of those things that you wish someone would’ve told you, that you wish you would have done differently, and congratulate yourself when things are successful. It would’ve helped me look back and see how much I grew in those first few years and also would’ve allowed me to help other teachers in their first few years of teaching. I hope you are finding your way as a first year teacher, especially with the new experiences being thrown at everyone now.
