New Teacher Survey General by Joel Wagner - May 7, 2016July 29, 20160 A previous version of this article did not include the link to the survey. That has been updated to simplify the process. I’m working on a project. If you areÂ going to be starting yourÂ first or second year of teaching and would like to help me out by answering 5 questions for me, please complete this survey. I’ll share the results and the project with you when I’m finished. If that’s not you, please pass this on to your new teacher friends. photo credit: 2016 Commencement via photopin (license) Joel WagnerJoel 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.
