Insights from Early Career Teachers Getting Involved in Things I would just say, make sure you get in there and get involved in things. (Jenny) Finding a Good Mentor We have mentor teachers and I’m lucky that I’ve got a really good one. (Mike) Taking It Easy on Myself I’ve learned, and this is something that other staff told me, to take it easy on myself, and not to have such high expectations because I am so new to the game, and not to compare myself with the ones that have been teaching for 15 years.

Well, you know, you leave everything behind, all your family and your friends, to come out here and that kind of thing happens. You know, that was pretty disheartening.
