A Fresh Start

Many of you are beginning this school year where you left off—facing larger class sizes, budget cuts, the overtesting of your students, and other issues that have an impact on teaching.

Perhaps you’re worried about how to minimize stress and maintain a classroom that’s calm, cool, and serene. Maybe you want some guidance on how to create lessons that make a difference, or you’re looking for ways to infuse technology into your classes.

Packed with tips from educators across the country, our cover story has everything you need to make this school year a rousing success. Best of all, the tips come from educators—the people who know best what works in the classroom. Let their experiences guide you toward a successful and scholastically enriching year.

As we look ahead to the new school year, we at NEA Today are also looking back on a successful 2013 – 2014 publishing year— a time when several of our stories, including the feature story “Students With Physical Disabilities Speak Out on Challenges in School” (Spring 2013), by staff writer Cindy Long, was recognized with an award. And our recently concluded ZIP Code series—which looked at the public education system in specific areas—was honored by the Education Writers Association for continuing coverage of a single topic.

We believe these awards are tangible evidence of our commitment to supplying you with content is engaging and original, and designed to help you in the classroom and away from school. Together, we will make the 2014 – 2015 school year a success.

Here’s to your best year yet!
