This is far more than I expected it to be. I'm a 42 year old who is changing careers to become a high school social studies teacher and I want to make copies of each worksheet in the book and file them away so I have them going forward in my studies and as a teacher. This book is fantastic for brand new teachers, future teachers entering a program, and teachers who have been doing it for a while and want to brush up.

If you are a teacher, this is a wonderful resource! I have been teaching for 25 years and have found it to be a wonderful resource! I just wish I would have had it from the beginning of my career! Thank you for writing this book! I hope to use it as I guide new teachers in the University setting!

This book is comprehensive and practical for new teachers (and experienced teachers). It is an outstanding resource for any new teacher who wants to start their career on the right foot. The authors, veteran educators, share their wealth of experience and knowledge in a concise and engaging manner that makes the book easy to read and implement.

One of the things I appreciated most about this book was the practicality of the tips. Each chapter is devoted to a specific tip for teaching and offers actionable advice on how to excel in that area and resources. From preparing for your first day in your own classroom to instructional strategies to professional development, the authors cover all the essential topics new teachers need to know.

Overall, I highly recommend "Crush it from the start: 50 tips for new teachers" to any new teacher who doesn't know where to start and looking to improve their skills and make a positive impact in the classroom. The book is informative, engaging, and full of practical advice that will help you thrive in your new role.
