Nurture. Inspire. Lead.
"1 in every 2 teachers are exiting our industry, in their first 5 years due to burnout."
This is due to 3 issues:
- training is not preparing graduate teachers for real life teaching;
- experienced teachers do not have time to mentor beginning teachers;
- existing mentoring in schools for early career teachers is inadequate;
Beginning teachers are at the start of their careers and learning to walk! Making mistakes and developing their teacher style is exactly what they should be focussed on doing in order to grow professionally. Yet they are given the same admin responsibilities as experienced teachers when starting their career day 1. This creates invisible and unrealistic expectations which in turn causes instant pressure and stress on beginning teachers unnecessarily. It isn't fair and it isn't right.
Beginning teachers are thrown in the deep end and learn to stay afloat by spending hours each day sourcing lesson ideas for the next day on their own outside school hours, forgoing vital sleep, due to the culture and situation of our national system. Burnout is almost guaranteed on this pathway as it has become the system within education, statistics don't lie.
Starting your teaching career should be exciting, full of adventure, implementing teaching strategies that are effective and evidenced based, so you can focus on your students, getting to know them and begin to spread your own teacher wings.
I want beginning teachers to be excited about the creative aspects of teaching, knowing they have access to mentoring, resources and teaching tools that support their roles and responsibilities as an Australian educator. Focusing all their energy on learning who they are as an educator and mastering the skill of running the many moving parts of a classroom!
This time is all about curiosity, passion, creativity, exploring, testing, trialling and a time of enormous growth for early career teachers!!!
I absolutely love working with teachers in their first 5 years, supporting them on their teaching journey in these incredible moments, when starting their career (instead of suffering burnout). This is why I built Savvy Teachers... so early career teachers have access to mentoring, workshops and resources as a platform to rely on as they spread their 'teacher' wings and begin their career.

The "T.E.A.C.H. Model" ™
What if I told you, that I can show you how to plan your lessons so that you can cater to at least 80% of your students' learning needs, regardless of age, subject or your teaching experience..... WHAT THAT BE OF VALUE TO YOU ?
>> ATTEND WORKSHOP <<
YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:
Collect prior knowledge, identify and close the gaps in the learning, plan lessons that include more than 3 learning modalities, differentiate the learning, use effective teaching/learning strategies, have engaging discussions, give/receive feedback using a simple format, along with building meaningful connections with your students. Using this model will bring consistent structure, build trust in your classroom, students will feel valued + heard like never before.
REMOVE ANY SECOND GUESSING AROUND YOUR PLANNING & TEACHING!
"The best part about this method is that I no longer 'worry' if I am planning or teaching the right way. My students are engaged, asking questions and I'm observing them making decisions about 'how' they learn. It has made a huge difference in my planning time and I actually feel confident teaching." Belinda H.

"Once you learn the universal needs and fears infographic, you are able to further understand yourself better, and your students' behaviours. You will be able to decode behaviours and build rapport in what you use to see as 'challenging' moments. You will find yourself remaining calm, seeing past the reaction, identify an opportunity to connect with your student and implement strategies you have learnt. Behaviour management is about understanding your students and once you do that, you will build meaningful relationships with your students and this is where the magic is.... the reason you became a teacher."

Savvy Teachers Mentorship Program
This course literally saved my mental health! It had everything I needed as new teacher. Uni was not what I was expecting and this program has the training and fills the gaps between uni and teaching. I wasn't sure if I should go for the pre-service program or the full mentorship program but I am beyond happy with the full program. I now feel confident to teach plus access the training, support and resources when I need it. Thank you Rachel for helping me feel confident again and sharing your teaching knowledge!"
