Assisting Student Teachers
Young adults entering the teaching profession need proper guidance and leadership to ensure they develop into effective teachers. Being a young second year teacher myself, I understand this concept significantly. However, do you think new teachers can learn how to be effective from a teacher who has been teaching less than five years?

I do think that Educators that have only been teaching less than 5 years can be very useful to student teachers. The problem that I run into with senior teachers is that they mostly complain a lot about all of the changes and quite frankly it can be discouraging for an intern. I do think however the supervising teacher should have at least three years of experience before taking on an intern. Having an intern in your classroom is a lot of work. Interns are required to teach a certain amount of lesson through out your class schedule and if you are a new teacher, you may not have the additional time to spare. This may be a case by case situation.

I do think that new teachers can learn effectively from teachers that are also new into the profession. To teach well, you have to have teaching in your heart. The greatest teachers are those that love what they do, whether they've been teaching for 4 years or 40, if they love what they do.

Hi apePev,

I think that educators with less than five years experience can be very useful to interns. I am an intern currently working with a teacher that has only been in the field 4 years and she is wonderful. She is very encouraging and offers me a fresh and relevant perspective each time I go to her for guidance. It is great because she often remembers exactly what I am referring to when I am talking about things I am learning in my classes since it has not been that long since she has taken those same classes. This allows us to communicate very well, which is so important.

As a second year intern who has only worked with veteran teachers, I think that newer teachers can be very helpful to interns. They can offer a different perspective than veteran teachers, who may complain about all of the changes that are made. The new teachers are closer in experience to interns, so the interns can get a true "feel" for what it is like being a teacher. It can also show interns the problems they face when they first start teaching.

I think that they most certainly can learn a lot from a teacher teaching less than 5 years. I feel that teachers who have tenure in the profession often expose the most negative things about education and students and this environment has the potential deter younger people from the profession. Teacher that have less than 5 years of teaching are still fresh faced and understand the direction education is going in and how it will be helpful to students. Also teachers with less than 5 years experience are more understanding and accepting of change and flexibility.

I definitely think so. I believe that everyone has something to offer. Everyone has different life experiences than one another, which are certainly useful in teaching.

This is all circumstantial. The first year should be a time of trial and error. I would suggest having a mentor to go to with questions instead of a co-teach the first year.

I completely agree. It all depend on that teaches ability. Some teacher go into the educator position with a great deal of experience where as other may not. However, I do think that the first hear for any teacher should be trial and error.
