Probably one of my most memorable parts of becoming a teacher was my final year of study and the practicums. I was starting to really feel like a teacher and I could see my dream of teaching, in the light at the end of the tunnel. I even managed to get a top marks (despite just passing for the previous 3 years in subjects) and became a targeted graduate for NSW department of education based on my interview, my portfolio and practicum reports . This enabled to be offered permanent position teaching in the public system straight from university (I was 1 of 2 from 200 graduates from Sydney Uni). I couldn't believe it but I knew it had came down to (A) how I planned my final year and (B) the key things I did played a HUGE part in all this! I will talk more about this later!
I do want to be honest with you.... jumping into full time teaching was like going from doggy paddle in the beach in knee deep water, to being dropped in the ocean with no land to be seen.... overwhelmed & stressed was an understatement!!! This is very much the way most beginning teachers describe their experience of teaching as well. University and tertiary education systems are not preparing teachers for real life teaching BUT..... I can show you how to set yourself up for success based on where you are right now!
First I would love to hear from you! I want to know how you are feeling and where you feel you need more support to become a confident teacher while you are studying!
For your time & honesty, I have $180+ worth of teaching gifts and resources for you... which is my THANK YOU GIFT xox
THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME
