Words of Loving Wisdom...or Not!

Deb at Fabulously First is having a fun linky party so before my post 4th of July party starts I thought I’d join in. She’s asking us to link up with our words of wisdom for first year teachers. My student teacher from two years ago was hired at our school last year, and she would sometimes ask for bits of advice. I’ll share with you the two most important bits I think I gave her. You should pop on over and link up with your bits of loving wisdom too. 



  1. Hi Tammy,

    Glad you linked up with the Teacher's Wisdom linky party and that I found your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge with all the first year teachers.

  2. So true, Tammy! So true! About the room...that goes for paint and hanging things from ceiling when you're not "really" supposed to!


  3. Love your advice!! Especially the principals not noticing!!!!! Ha!

  4. Tammy,

    I love both of your words of advice! I will be a new teacher this year (2nd grade) and have really enjoyed reading all of the thoughtful advice from the expert teachers! I love your advice of "smile and nod" because my student teaching teacher told me to do that all the time.. and it really worked! Also, do you think that it's okay to paint an ugly gray filing cabinent that belongs to the school. I'm personally not happy with the boring color of it.. but am scared to ask if I can paint it.. especially as a new teacher. What do you think?

    Glad to have found your blog!

    That's So Second Grade
