Thinking About Teaching High School? What You Need to Know Before You Sign the Contract
 

Authored by Faye Allen

My first year of teaching was absolutely the worst year of my life. The only reason I went back for my second was that I had gone to college on a teaching scholarship and unless I completed four years of teaching, I had to pay back a lot of money. Fortunately for me, my second year was a lot better than my first, and by the time I completed the required four years, I could not imagine myself doing anything else.

During the thirty years that I taught high school, I served as mentor to a lot of beginning teachers, both officially and unofficially, and although no two of the teachers I worked with had exactly the same experience, they all felt just as lost and bewildered as I had during my first year.

A couple of years after I retired, a former student asked if I had any “words of wisdom” for her as she began her first year teaching. I don’t know how “wise” anything I told her was, but that conversation was the foundation for this book.
