In our “Start of a Journey” series over the past year, you followed Zack Griffin and Brittney Norman through one year in the life of a new educator. Now listen as they share their advice for first-year teachers coming into the profession.

When I feel myself getting really overwhelmed at times, I try to take a step back.
Teacher bladder—it’s a real thing!
