    Otis Kriegel has over 15 years of experience in community education. He has taught grades one through five in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York City. Otis is an adjunct faculty and student mentor at New York University and a lecturer at the Bank Street College of Education and City College of New York, where he earned an M.S.Ed. in bilingual education. He has conducted his workshop, “How to Survive Your First Years Teaching,” for hundreds of student teachers and veteran educators at schools including New York University and Rutgers University, as well as for graduates from Teach for America programs. In 2008, he started the parent advice website The K5 (theK5.com).

    Not your typical how-to manual for new teachers, this no-nonsense, jargon-free guide offers a wide variety of tools and tactics for getting through every school day with grace and sanity. Covered in glue, glitter, orange juice—or worse? Make a quick change into the spare set of clothes you keep on hand for just this purpose. Butterflies in your stomach before your first-ever Meet the Teacher Night? Keep your cool by writing the agenda on your board—it’ll double as a crib sheet for you.

    These tips and hundreds more, covering virtually every aspect of teaching, have all been learned the hard way: from real-life classroom experience. Otis Kriegel’s “little black book” will be a treasured resource for teachers who want not only to survive but to thrive in any situation.
