Coaching new teachers

Coaching new teachers at the start of a summer school program -

so much to impart, so little time...

Perhaps it is simple:

first, get to know the children - build a good relationship with each of them;

second, run with what they love and work the academics into can teach anything and everything when you teach through their interests;

third, laugh and have fun as you teach.

All will be well with this approach.
