A Not every school will be a fit, so take your time and research your choices before you decide where you want to call home. Finding the right school or position may take a few tries, but knowing what you don’t want can help you get closer to what you do.
It might sound hard hearing “slow down” but I promise and I beg you, “slow down” regardless of how anxious you are to get in your own classroom.
Ask yourself these questions:
- Does that school share the same vision as you do?
- What does the school stand for? Do you stand for the same thing?
- Can you grow at that school?
- What support will they provide you with? Remember you will be new, you need support.
And last, go on a search and look at their social media. Research the other teachers. Do y’all share the same likes? Personality? Can you envision yourself as a member of that school?
