Before you can step out into the world of education, you have to spend time as a Pre-Service teacher learning from those ahead of you. Today on the podcast I am talking with Dr. Sam Fecich, a college professor for Pre-Service teachers.
Sam reached out to me to connect and work together because while she works with pre-service teachers, a lot of you readers are still in college learning how to be the best teacher you can be.
But just because you aren’t a pre-service teacher doesn’t mean you can’t get a lot out of this episode! In fact, we spend a good chunk of our time talking about the struggle of wanting to change your role in education but feeling like you are stuck in the classroom.
We also talk to the Cooperating Teachers serving pre-service teachers and how you can best support them. If you’d like to get some Classroom Management tips on how to practically manage your classroom, you can get them right here!
Tips for Pre-Service Teachers
Sam talks about her book, Edumagic, that she wrote for Pre-Service Teachers (and y’all, college campuses have picked it up as curriculum for their students! How cool is that?!?)
Each letter in Edumagic stands for a part of being the best teacher you can be.
- E- educate and engage
- D- digital presence
- U- unite your PLN (professional learning network)
- M- megapixels (how to make your plans even better!)
- A- aways be
- G- get out!
- I- inconceivable
- C- cooperating teacher gone virtual
If you are a pre-service teacher or getting ready to start a school year, I’d love to invite you to check out my course Kickstart Your School Year. It opens up twice a year but you can get all the info right here.
I’d love for you to have a listen HERE. And I would especially love it if you shared it with your other teacher friends!!!
