As educators, we know full well the challenge that faces a first year teacher for their entire first year. There’s no sugarcoating it! It’ll be tough!

We have on the show Lee Araoz, Carrie Baughcum, Tandy Caraway, Carina Hilbert, Josie Mittleman and Scott Rosenkranz. We want to cover the best books you should read, the staff development you should seek out, the type of supports you should have in schools, in social media and at home. Here's a little more about our education experts: Lee Araoz is a K-12 instructional technology coordinator/coach, staff developer and teacher.
