Another First Year Teacher! * UPDATE* I met her.
This is just a vent and I do know that some first year teachers are naturally talented but I admit to feeling frustrated.
My son is entering third grade and this will be the second year in a row that he has a first year teacher. Last year the teacher didn't have control over the class and seemed more interested in planning her wedding than teaching. I'm just worried that for the second consecutive year he has a brand new teacher.
In kindergarten he had a second year teacher but she was extraordinary. I can't put into words how good she was. I guess because it's a new school they have new teachers. The experienced teachers are established at their schools. It makes me uneasy.
Anyone have any experiences with first year teachers?
