Got Ideas? A Chance to Help Newbies!

This year I am mentoring a brand new teacher.  It is the first official mentoring capacity I've had, and I'm pleasantly surprised at how well our district supports brand new teachers.  I wish that I had started in my current district because I could have benefitted from the support they provide!

During December we are having a fair for ALL the new teachers in our district.  The mentors get together to provide resources to the newbie.  There are raffles and lots of ideas on display.  Our table is all about "STRESS MANAGEMENT."  I need your help!!!!

I'm looking for ideas to add to our table!  If you have anything that you'd like to contribute, I'm looking for items that I can display on a trifold display or to hand out to the mentees.  We have chair massages coming and will be giving away CDs of relaxation music and stress ball relievers.  I was also thinking of having ideas of management that might help relieve some of the stress as well.

If you might be interested, please email me at  I will also be encouraging online communities as a way to build community and find resources.
