    TnT 98 Actionable strategies for new special education teachers

    Being a new teacher is difficult for everyone, but SPED teachers have a unique set of challenges that most of us gen ed teachers never realize. Part teacher, part curriculum writer, and part parent liaison (among other things), SPED teachers wear many hats. In this episode, Brandie Rosen and I discuss not only the challenges but how to attack these without losing your mind.

    TnT 97 How gen ed teachers can support SPED students

    We will all have special ed, or SPED students at some point in our classrooms, and we often feel lost in terms of how to support them. New teachers especially struggle since they struggle to know things like accommodations and IEPs. So I brought on special education expert, Brandie Rosen, and we discussed all things SPED.

    TnT 96 How to create a self-running classroom using a classroom economy

    TnT 96 How to create a self-running classroom using a classroom economy

    As a new teacher, can you imagine how awesome it would be if your classroom basically ran itself so that you could focus on small group and individual instruction? There are obviously a ton of ways to get a classroom to run smoothly and to keep students engaged, but what if you could do it while teaching them about personal and fiscal responsibility? In this episode, Thom Gibson describes just how he accomplishes this through a system he tweaked and innovated over the years and that he keeps on perfecting.

    TnT 95 How new teachers can invest in their future now and have big wins in retirement

    In the last episode, we discuss how to pay off debt and save for an emergency fund, as well as the need for a budget, and today we discuss our financial future - which can be difficult for some to consider when they’ve got another 30 years of teaching to go! But it’s so important that we start early because when it comes to retirement savings, time is your friend! So Rob discusses how to plan so that you can have the lifestyle you want when you retire, how you can retire earlier than planned, and how the financial independence movement that’s taking storm can benefit you.

    TnT 94 Common financial pitfalls that new teachers make

    TnT 94 Common financial pitfalls that new teachers make

    A lot of college graduates find themselves entering the professional world without a solid financial base. They have this newfound money that they’re working their butts off to earn, and they want to live it up and have fun. This is exactly what I did, and luckily, I managed to start saving for retirement. However, a lot of financial pitfalls that come with this type of lifestyle such as consumer debt really caught up with me and so many others.
    So today, I’m having a conversation with Rob Phelan, who’s a high school personal finance and math teacher from Maryland, and we’re going to dive into a conversation about the traps that newer and younger teachers tend to get caught up in. We also discuss the steps to get out of that when you’re finally ready to get serious about getting your finances on track.

    TnT 93 Ways to reignite your passion for teaching when you want to quit

    Many new teachers get to the point where they're just DONE with their teaching situation, or maybe just teaching in general. While most of you are still excited about teaching since you've just started, there are still some of you that are already overwhelmed and just over it all and are wondering what to do next. You may be wondering if teaching is still right for you. You may have hated the first semester for a variety of reasons that seem beyond your control. Maybe you still love teaching but there’s just something that’s making it less enjoyable or less fulfilling. In today's episode, I give you some options aside from quitting teaching altogether that may make teaching more enjoyable and keep you in the field.
