Welcome to New Teachers Shared Experience!

As Catholic educators, new teachers to the diocese face a three fold challenge.
  1. Not only teach about Christ's love but live it out in every day circumstances.
  2. Prepare content for classes that are totally new.
  3. Personally and professionally reflect on what went right and what went wrong.
Every educator had a first year! Blessed Pauline von Mallinckrodt, foundress of the Sisters of Christian Charity, educator in the 19th century writes this to one of her new teachers who was teaching 100 primary school children in one class! Some aspects of education have certainly changed!"Rome was not built in a day. Be patient with your students and with yourself. Listen to your mentor. She has been where you are and can teach you much."
