Welcome back edumagicians! Today I have a fellow Education Podcast Network (EPN) host with me on the show - Gretchen Bridgers from Always a Lesson. During this episode, Gretchen shares her teaching story and how her passion for new teachers began to bloom. I love how she shares, "I fell in love with teaching teachers." Gretchen is the new teacher coach that she wished she had when she was a beginning teacher. Her story is powerful and I am so excited to share it with you!
Give this episode a listen, and after this show, you are going to learn 5 ideas for new and student teachers. Here they are:
It's ok to dream as a teacher
Teachers are lifelong learners - PD that is customized for you and how to find your own PD plan as a new teacher
As a student-teacher during COVID embrace this opportunity to learn and grow.
There are a variety of learning paths - passive and action-oriented learning opportunities
Be a leader in your student teaching experience - inquire about opportunities to lead in small and large ways in the classroom. It will grow - show up and lead!
