Life as a First Year Teacher

Tonight I presented to a group of pre-serivce teachers at the University of Regina about “Life as a first year teacher.” It was great to share my experiences and advice while also learning from the other presenters (post-internship students and cooperating teachers). Here are the slides I used for my presentation. I tried to keep a simplistic design and focus more on what I was actually saying while using the slides to enhance my presentation. Let me know what you think and feel free to comment with any suggestions, comments or stories regarding your first year of teaching.
