Advice for First Year Special Education Teachers

Sunday, July 20, 2014

A recently had a newly licensed teacher, who obtained her first special education teaching job, ask me for advice as she started her first year. After some thought I wrote down much more advice for her than I thought I had. I decided to make it a post. Below is the contents:

So what advice would you give a new teacher? What did I miss? I’d love to hear from you!


  1. Thank you for sharing your letter! I will begin as a new teacher this upcoming school year and it was refreshing to read advice covering not only the good, but the inevitable bad days (situations) that teachers are faced with.

  2. Hello, 
    I didn't see a way to contact you by email. I'm teaming up with several other sped teacher bloggers and putting together a BTS giveaway and freebie hop with sped-related items just for special education teachers!! I'm trying to include as many special educators as I can and just found you. I was wondering if you'd be interested in joining us by donating a product from your store for the giveaway! So far I have about 20 other SPED bloggers participating! You can read more about the giveaway on my blog at the link below and fill out the interest form there as well:

    Hope you will join us,
