Blog features tips for aspiring educators


In the FIP Your School blog, Carol Harper offers Tips for Aspiring Educators to help those seeking teaching positions make the most of this year and continue to develop essential teaching skills.

A recent graduate herself, Harper urges would-be teachers to seek continuous improvement outside of the classroom.

"It may be disheartening to realize the hiring cycle for the majority of teaching jobs is now over for the coming school year, but this is not the time to give up," writes Harper. "This is the time to harness your passion for education and continue to persevere. With some smart planning, intentional networking, and creative thinking, you can make the most of this year and continue to develop your teaching skills."

The FIP Your School Ohio blog is a partnership between the Ohio Department of Education and Battelle for Kids providing up-to-date information about FIP Your School Ohio and showcase a variety of perspectives about how formative instructional practices are being used in Ohio.
