  Tips for new teachers My first-year teaching was an unforgettable experience. I left my home state of New Jersey and moved to the rural south in North Carolina to teach High School Spanish with Teach for America. There were many lows, but many more highs. I learned invaluable lessons about myself and teaching through this experience, and the whole experience was unforgettable. Here is a short guide for first year teachers with some simple things to keep in mind as you navigate your own experience during year one. 1. Ask for help The “fake it 'til you make it” mentality will only get you so far, and kids are smarter than you may think - they can see right through this.

We’ve all heard it before— the best way to experience a new country is to live there rather than just to visit. But there’s truth behind the cliche. There is something different about living somewhere out of your comfort zone, whether that’s a few months or a few years, and there are lots of opportunities to do so. Everyone should get this chance, and one of the easiest ways to do it is to get a job overseas, such as volunteering, internships, tourism, start-up businesses. Often recent college graduates turn to teaching positions; while it is one of the most common routes, it is always in high demand. Teaching Nomad opens a whole new world to those who are looking to teach something other than English to kids (though this is a fantastic way to get involved and make a difference!).
