Tips for New Teachers

I wrote a new article about tips for new teachers, and I'd love for people to take a look and let me know what I've left out (I'm sure I've left something out!) so I can update it.  Feedback is always good.  Thanks!

Hi, I had a read of your Tips article. Looks good, just one thing I would consider missing is along the lines of "surviving the staffroom" (especially if there are any as yet unknown, to you, strains going on in the politics of the school). As a well establised teacher, what do you (and your colleagues) expect out of a newbie?

Oh, good point! I'll add to it right now. I would say that new teachers should avoid politics if at all possible. For more details, check out the article again and let me know if you have any other questions!
