I Get It! I've been there. I graduated from college 26 years ago with my bachelor's in education, so eager to get started teaching. I actually had an offer for a teaching position before I graduated, so I was even more excited than most. I was anxious all summer about beginning my career as a teacher. I was going to make a difference in the lives of children. Boy, was I in for a BIG surprise!! I had absolutely NO SKILLS! When my first class arrived I had no idea what I was doing. No one prepared me for the various behavior problems that were going to arise. I had absolutely NO IDEA how to plan lessons effectively and grading papers efficiently was a joke! I wasn't sure if the way I was teaching was effective. Parent conferences were the scariest things to me because I had no plan or procedure in place to conduct an effective parent conference. What made matters worse was that there was a seasoned teacher in the building who had taken on the task of mentoring the other new teacher in the building, but, not me. So, I was on my own. I was confused, frustrated and many times wished I had just pursued a different career altogether. I was miserable. I learned by trial and error how to be an effective teacher with an engaging classroom. If you can relate to any of this, trust me, you don't have to learn by trial and error.

""MY VERY FIRST TEACHING EXPERIENCE WAS WITHIN THE WALLS OF HIGHLAND PARK ES. MY VERY FIRST MENTOR WAS MS. FELTON. I NEVER ACTUALLY KNEW WHAT I WANTED TO BE WHEN I GREW UP. I NEVER PLANNED ON GROWING UP. I HAD A VERY SMALL LIST OF POSSIBILITIES, HOPES AND DREAMS AND TEACHING DID NOT MAKE THE LIST. YES, I WAS A TEACHER WHEN PLAYING SCHOOL WITH FRIENDS AS A CHILD, I SAW TEACHERS ON TELEVISION AND I DID HOMEWORK ASSIGNED BY TEACHERS IN SCHOOL… BUT ME A TEACHER? THIS CONCEPT WAS SO HARD TO GRASP UNTIL I WORKED WITH MS. FELTON AS A STUDENT TEACHER. I AM NOW A SUCCESSFUL STUDENT, TEACHER AND PROFESSIONAL BECAUSE OF HER MENTORSHIP. SHE TAUGHT ME THAT TEACHING IS A COMPLEX ACT BUT YOU CAN BE READY FOR THE STAGE WITH; HARD WORK, EFFECTIVE CLASSROOM MANAGEMENT, WILLINGNESS TO GROW, COMPASSION AND LEADERSHIP. WITH MS. FELTON’S HELP, I LEARNED HOW TO SET GOALS AND HIGH EXPECTATIONS FOR MY STUDENTS. I LEARNED HOW TO PLAN AN EFFECTIVE LESSON AND INCORPORATE A MULTITUDE OF INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS. MORE IMPORTANTLY, I LEARNED HOW TO BE RESILIENT AND FLEXIBLE IN TEACHING. I DIDN'T KNOW THAT I COULD BECOME A TEACHER UNTIL I WORKED WITH ONE WHO SAW CURIOSITY, CREATIVITY AND CONFIDENCE WITHIN ME. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOUR SUPPORT MS. FELTON!"
