What I wish I knew my first year (podcast!)

What do I wish I’d known on my very first day as an educator? That a great educator always has a good sense of humor, a positive attitude, and a backup set of markers.

If you ask Toby Murphy, a 10-year language arts teacher from New Jersey, he would tell you that middle schoolers really aren’t as intimidating as you’ve heard (sure, Toby) and that your colleagues will be your strongest support system.

On this latest School Me podcast episode, listen to Toby as he travels back to the beginning of his career to find out what he wishes he knew then and what he might do differently if given the chance.
