Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"I would say have confidence in yourself and remember that we learn as we go. So don't be afraid to take the step forward and start sharing what you know and you will find you know more than you thought. I have found over my years of teaching that there is a great satisfaction that comes with sharing your talents with others."
