Dr. William DeJean
Did you know that I almost quit after my first year teaching? I was struggling so much that I thought teaching was something I couldn’t do. What sometimes made it worse was feeling that others had it all figured out. It was an isolating time, filled with doubt, uncertainty and a lot of hard work. I found gradual success through the support of mentors, books, professors and other colleagues. It’s one of the reasons I founded Unleash Learning and why we are launching the New Teacher Companion in February, 2019. It’s so that new teachers, mentors and their support providers have the tools, resources and networks to support early career success.
