We are passionate about professional development for teachers and have worked with over 5,000 teachers since 2017. As a teacher, you are the most important person in the classroom – you make the greatest impact on the students in front of you.
Here we are, one month into the New Year and …what did you say your resolutions were again? How many of us have set good intentions for those all-important goals and have already given up on them three weeks into the year!
So how do we make those goals stick?
At the start of this third lockdown, I felt like I would never be able to get into a routine again like I was last year in March. The weather helped with moods and the ability to be outside at any time of the day! This time it’s been tough to figure things out!
It is important that in setting your timetable that you write it out every morning and timetable in everything, be that your breaks, a walk, reading time.
A timetable of your week’s activities is a good idea too, for both you and the pupils.

We explore topics such as:
Nurturing empathy and using restorative practice in the classroom
Embedding formative assessment in your practice.
Nobody enters the teaching profession to become a millionaire – we know that money is not necessarily the main reward with teaching.
It can be a secure and pensionable permanent job – but not one that provides financial freedom or other options.
Often, we think “I only earn a teacher’s salary” and therefore it rules things out for us. Teachers often think it will take them a very long time to get on the property ladder… and even longer to be mortgage-free.
I am so excited to be able to share this series with you, where I share my knowledge, hindsight and tips as you embark on your teaching journey. We really have no time to waste, so let’s get started! A …
Your NQT year will be a bit of a journey, just like your training was – but by now you know that the highs will always balance out the lows. Teaching is one of the most rewarding jobs in the world!
