Nine Mistakes New Teachers Make

From Education Week, and designed for K-12 teachers, but most apply to us as well:

1. Inconsistency

2. Focusing on Lesson Planning Rather than Student Learning

3. Grading Everything

4. Avoiding Parent Contact

5. Not Setting Boundaries With Students

6. Being Afraid to Ask for Help

7. Being Afraid to Speak Up

8. Burning Out

9. Forgetting the Joys of Teaching

Ultimately, educators at every level make mistakes. While there may not be a “Ctrl+Z” function for the classroom, each morning represents a chance to start fresh, make amends, and try again. Children are resilient and incredibly forgiving. Give your students your best, and you will be amazed at what you can accomplish year after year, imperfections and all.
