Is a graduate teacher ready to teach? I always determined this by asking (of myself) two people questions.

My two questions were always these:

1. Would I as a school principal appreciate and value you as a member of my staff?
2. Would I as a parent of school aged children feel confident in having you as their classroom teacher?

If the answer to both these questions is a quite resounding ‘yes’, the teacher is ready to teach. Welcome to your classroom.
