As one of my school's union reps, I talk to our new teachers about our local union organization, where their union dues go, who's who in area union activities, etc. I encourage them to be verbal about asking questions regarding their new positions. Our association usually provides all new teachers with two NEA publication Checklists geared for beginning teachers. For those in my department, I offer them the use of any teaching materials I have and offer them any assistance I can toward helping them in their new job.
