As our students get ready for a new school year, so do teachers. My friend Barbara’s daughter just got a job as a Kindergarten teacher, her first teaching job….and she is scared. Scared of making mistakes…..of not doing it right. Ah…..interesting…..I bet just like some of her Kindergartners. Teaching is a really hard job; I know because I was one. Most go into the profession because they care about children; they want to make a difference; they want kids to succeed. They just need help and support, coaching and resources….and empathy too.
