The Voice of Experience
Retired educators share their best advice for new teachers.
“Just remember, you’re not by yourself,” said NEA-Retired member Gerald Lillard when we asked him what he would like to say to a new teacher. Reach out to colleagues throughout the building, said another; don’t be afraid to ask for help, advised the next. Do you see a pattern here?
The advice and encouragement offered by these 14 retired educators come from years of experience—more than 515 between them!—and a heart-felt desire to help the profession's next generation get off to a good start.
