Call for Guest Bloggers

361241_odds_and_ends_2I have a few things planned for the summer, but one thing I really would like to do is feature a series of articles by first-year teachers reflecting on their first year of teaching. If you have a blog, feel free to quote liberally from your posts throughout the year. If not, that’s okay! You can write one post or even a handful of them. I’d really like to be able to get these thoughts out there and share them with future first-year teachers.

Maybe you’ve been teaching for longer. Maybe you haven’t. Either way, you are also welcome to submit guest posts. Anything that might remotely relate to teachers is welcome. For ideas from previous guest bloggers, check out these articles.

How do you contact me? Email or Twitter.

EDIT: If you need some ideas for topics, check out the comments below…

About Joel Wagner 522 Articles
Joel Wagner (@sywtt) began teaching band in 2002. Though he had a lot of information, his classes were out of control. He found himself tired, frustrated, disrespected by students, lonely, and on the brink of quitting. He had had enough. He resigned from his school district right before spring break of his second year and made it his personal mission to learn to be a great teacher. So You Want To Teach? is the ongoing story of that quest for educational excellence.

  1. Some people have been asking me what kinds of things they should write about. I guess the main thing I want to do is get YOU thinking back and analyzing your first year as a teacher. I also want future new teachers to be able to use some of these guest posts as encouragement, inspiration, or reality-checks as they enter the teaching professions.

    So if you need a “writing prompt” of sorts, try:

    • What were you least prepared for this year?
    • What were you most prepared for this year?
    • What were some of the biggest surprises this year; things that you never guessed might happen based on your student teaching experience?
    • What advice would you give to students enrolled in teacher preparation courses
