“Learning as a new teacher is rather like building the airplane while it is in the air. Thriving as a New Teacher provides important starting points for learning. It is clear the authors have extensive experience working with teachers and school personnel and have organized the book to help those who need a start but don't have too much time. The vignettes, checklists, and diagrams are very helpful conceptually and give the new teacher a place to begin organizing his or her own classroom system.”

Carolyn Evertson, director, College of Education and Human Development, Vanderbilt Peabody College, Tennessee

“This book is an excellent road map for new teachers as they navigate their way to becoming thriving educators. As a principal, I plan to use lessons from the authors' six spheres as part of my new-teacher orientation. With the book's real-life examples and opportunities for reflection, even seasoned teachers will benefit.”

Kirk M. Rickansrud, principal, Thomas Paine Elementary School, New Jersey
