SBC Loves First-Time Teachers and Teachers-to-Be!

27 Oct

As a recent(ish) college grad, I have a lot of friends who are first-time teachers. They’re scattered all over—in Boston and San Francisco, in rural Pennsylvania, and in the southernmost part of Texas (hi, Sam!). I’ve been thinking about them a lot lately, because even though they’re some of the most wonderful, creative, and hardworking people I know, it’s clear that the first year of teaching is still a HUGE challenge.

Enter Scholastic Book Clubs. We know that we can’t help with all the challenges that new teachers and teachers-to-be face, but we can make it easier for you to get great, age-appropriate books for your classroom library. New teachers who sign up for Book Clubs can receive up to 25 FREE Books during their first year teaching, and Bonus Points and contests help you earn more books and curriculum tie-ins for your classroom! Plus, for those of you who are in training to become teachers, if you register on our Web site, we’ll send you info about awesome giveaways and sweepstakes so that by the time you do walk into your own classroom, you’ll have some great materials to bring with you.

But enough about us. New teachers and teachers-to-be, we want to hear from YOU about what kinds of rewards, materials, and programs you want to see available from Scholastic Book Clubs. Veteran teachers, we want to know what advice you can offer your colleagues who are just starting out in the world of teaching. And thanks again to all of you for working so hard to inspire a love of learning in your students!

This post comes to you from Liz, Guest Blogger and Recent Addition to the Book Clubs Family.

    I love that you have thought of the teachers-to-be. So many times as a student teacher I have wanted to start collecting information from a company so I am ready when I get my own classroom. Unfortunately, a lot of times one can’t register until they are affiliated with a particular school. Thank you Scholastic!
