Houston, TX, July 15, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Raindrop Books USA is proud to announce a new teacher resource titled “A Guide for a Successful New Teacher” written by Miranda Robinson. This 32-page handbook provides proven techniques that build respectful relationships, decreases negative behavior, and creates a positive classroom environment conducive for learning. No matter the age, all students want to be taught in a safe, structured, loving environment with the utmost respect.
Teachers are in high demand, especially in metropolitan areas, due to their high mobility rate. Page 3 of a recent study from the U.S. Department of Education entitled, “Teacher Attrition and Mobility: Results from the 2012-13 Teacher Follow-up Survey First Look” states in their selected findings that “About 30% of public school teacher movers changed schools involuntarily in 2012-2013” and “About 10% of public school teacher leavers left teaching involuntarily in 2012-13” (Goldring et al., 2014). This constant movement has created a revolving door that the schools have to manage every school year. Some of these new employees have minimal to no experience in the simultaneous management of classroom instruction, technology, the various personalities, attitudes and behaviors they will encounter. Consequently, training in classroom management is essential to be successful during the first few years of teaching.
