Teaching is important.

Teaching is changing.

Teaching is hard.

And at the intersection of these three truths lies the constant need for a variety of support for teachers–new teachers or experienced.

      • Mr. Zsilavec

        1,2,6 and 10 are actually my favorites on this list. In fact, all I intended with my comment was to have a little fun and do exactly what the author asked in the last sentence before the tips.
