During my many years of teaching, I have been blessed to have had a variety of teachers who were not only my friends but my family as well. As teachers, we are often spend a lot of time with our co-workers, especially are grade-level co-workers. We get together to plan lessons and create assessments. We’re together during recess duty and faculty meetings. When you find a teacher friend that you can connect with, it makes the teaching journey a bit easier.

If you are a new teacher or if you are heading to a new school, I suggest that you find at least one teacher friend. Having a teacher friend goes beyond just finding someone you work with. A teacher friend is someone that you have a genuine relationship with. Teacher friends help to make you better. Your teacher friends should help you become a better teacher as you help them become a better teacher.
I wrote about teacher friends previously, but I decided to make a quick video about it too. Here are a few reasons why you need teacher friends. Please don’t forget to subscribe to the Tame the Classroom YouTube channel.
