I love the helpful hints on this website. Thank you for taking the time out of your day to post these ideas for others to try out. I am currently a senior in college in Nebraska majoring in Art Education; my endorsement is for grades K-12. I have two semesters left before I can dive into student teaching, and then hopefully teaching my own class. The information is wonderful but, don't count me as too naive. I am sure no matter how many tricks I have in my bag nothing will substitute for the lessons I will learn through trial; and hopefully minimal, error of teaching in the classroom.
I can totally relate. This is just my 4th year teaching so I'm not too far removed from remembering my first year. Let me affirm that you're totally doing the right thing. That is: copy what works from others and see if it works for you!
Also, you're right... experience is the best teacher for teachers! I have a feeling that you're going to be a great educator.
