Teaching is some of the most challenging work in the world, involving so many different skills. Finding ways to explain adverbs or Pythagorean triangles is just the beginning. You’re also a peacemaker, a counselor, a cheerleader, and above all a juggler of all the competing demands of the job.
Our most important resource is each other. We in UFT ACTS believe that working together, sharing experiences – what worked in your classroom…what didn’t – is one way that we hone our skills and make our schools better. So check out the resources in this section, but walk down the hall and ask one of your fellow teachers, too!
