Teachers: Crunch Time In The Classroom

Md_horiz (4)It's make or break time not just for elected officials but also for new teachers.  Between now and the winter break is when many rookies hit the wall, realizing that classroom teaching is hard no matter how smart they are and how good a student they've been.  It doesn't make things easier that veteran teachers and a few blessed souls are having a much easier time of it, or that the expectations thrust on them about high expectations and teaching to meet every students' needs can be so unrealistic.  Roxanna Elden's got some good thoughts about this but the main point is to recognize the crucial nature of the brief and intense time period we're in right now.  Are there any rookies in your school who might need a helping hand?
