Hi, I'm Katy Hill. I'm a fourth grade, middle school teacher, and these are some things that teachers need for the first day of school. On the first day of school, there are several things that a teacher needs to be successful. One of the things for me, is a roster of all the kids names. If you're like me, the kids' names are on lots of different things in the room. From the door, to their desks, to their jobs, on the white board, to several other things. And so, after the first day, when they've let you know, what they want to be called. Then you have that opportunity to go and put you know, those things, where they belong. Another thing is, a teacher definitely needs too much to do, more than they think that they'll need. Because you definitely are going to be nervous enough on your first day. And you don't want to have to wonder if you're going to run out of things to do. So, I like to have plenty of things to choose from. And also, you can tell if they're getting a little antsy with something. And you had something else planned to do next. Then you can kind of, pick and say, okay, well, I have something different planned, that I can pull from. Instead of what you had originally planed. The last thing is, just be confident for your first day. Because they are going to be a lot nervous, like I said, than you are. And if you like, and you act like, you know what you're doing.Then they're going to trust you and they're going to follow you. And it doesn't really matter, if you're kind of, just feeling your way through it.
