Welcome! Hi there , lovely people. My name is Bettany Valsin, and I’m an elementary school teacher who loves to discuss EVERYTHING education from first-year teacher tips allllll the way to education policy. My blog posts are primarily geared towards empowering teachers who are new to the profession (like myself) to be confident in their growth, development, and passion. I want new teachers to be aware of the fact that they are not alone in the arduous path of the first few years of teaching. Above all, I write for those of us who believe in the light of every student, as well as those of us who are very reflective in our “not so easy , but always SO rewarding” teacher life. Follow me on my path as an educator as I share many different tips and perspectives in order to inspire and support new teachers and those who are passionate about education. If you love what you read here, please don’t hesitate to share on your social networks. I am so ecstatic that you decided to stop by! Enjoy!
