I accepted my first contract over the break to teach Elementary Art and Jan. 6 is my first day. Any suggestions on how to handle my first day and introducing myself to the kids or any other advice for my first week?
I’ll be meeting with the previous teacher this week to go over what the classes have been doing so far this year.
Some background: I’m a ‘career switcher’ and have been subbing for about 6 months, but most of that time was in Middle and High schools. My biggest concern right now is just not having a lot of material already prepped. I’m a guy, which I guess makes me a rarity in K-5 art Ed. Any advice in general would be very welcome.
