What advice would you give to a new or struggling teacher?

Seek to learn from others and on your own. Remember we do this for the children and that they will only get this one childhood and that you have been blessed to be a part of it. Be a leader adn do not be scared to raise your own standards. Most of all, truly know the children in your care because for eight hours a day, five days a week, you are someone they can look up to, trust and emulate.
