Thank you for this post! I am a senior this year and majoring in elementary SPED. Next year, at this time, I will have my own classroom and I can’t be more any more excited! I am always searching for advice that will help my first year as a teacher go as smoothly as possible and your advice was great. Every point you listed are KEY to remember when becoming a teacher. A couple of points that stuck out to me were: “Never assume a child cannot do something” and “Let the student have the power”. With the first one, I think this will be hard for me realize at first. I always want to help students and give them answer. This is something that I cannot do. I need to have faith in my students so that they can accomplish tasks on their own. With the second one, I believe that students need to have a voice and they need to make decisions on their own.
