"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.
Our purpose-built teacher mentorship program is crafted just for you.

"Exhausted. Burnout. Lost. Stressed like crazy.
My brain wouldn't stop at night. I couldn't sleep. I was ready to walk away from teaching. I felt like such a failure.
Everyone at my school assumed I knew how to do everything and I felt unprofessional and inadequate. I had no idea that there was so much I didn't know, despite graduating with good marks and having great pracs.
Fast forward to now and I love teaching because I found this program! I got the support I needed and access to resources I needed.
I highly recommend the mentorship program to any new teacher and be aware that the education system does not support us like we need. Don't wait for support, go find your own."
- Tanya, K. Primary Teacher 2nd Year
"IF YOU ARE NOT ABLE TO FIND A TRAINING, A MODULE OR A WORKSHOP THAT SUPPORTS YOU IN AN AREA OF YOUR TEACHING...SIMPLY CONTACT ME + I WILL WORK WITH YOU + ENSURE IT IS ADDED TO THE PROGRAM.
I WANT YOU TO KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO HAVE THE SUPPORT OF A MENTOR WHO IS FOCUSED ON YOUR SUCCESS + YOUR GROWTH..."
"I joined in March 2022 as I was struggling. I work with good teachers at my school but everyone is already busy with their own classes. I feel like I am a burden with all my questions. This program has given me much needed direction in so many areas. Instead of searching for hours on the internet wondering if my lesson will even work, I log into the program and find the area I need support with and go through the training modules. It's simple to use and it is all there to go back to, so I don't have to try and remember (which has helped with my anxiety). The best part is, I have a life now since using Rachel's strategies for planning, marking and assessing. The "teach" framework is absolutely awesome. I don't know why they didn't teach us this at university."

"I got more out of your mentoring program than 4 years at uni. I can't thank you enough. What you share is so valuable and because of you, I know I can get through these next few years! I would have given up and walked away from teaching if I didn't join your mentoring program. THANK YOU!"
- Jacki M. Bachelor of Education (Prim)
"Having no mentor cost me my mental health! Rachel turned that around for me and her kindness is beyond anything I've experienced from someone I didn't know. She is so genuine and helps you personally as well as professional! I only wish I found her earlier."
- Michelle, C. Secondary Ed Science & Maths 3rd Year Teacher
"I honestly thought that I would have more support when I started teaching and I have never felt so alone. As a secondary teacher in my first year out, I was finding it hard to get support or resources or even a mentor. Teachers were too busy to help me and I was getting stressed and that was coming out when I taught. Students were distracted, mucking up and not listening. I wanted to give up in my first year. I saw this course on Facebook and how life has changed! The program has so much and Rachel is so supportive with great advice. She is calm and makes you feel confident. I would have given up teaching if it wasn't for this program and Rachel!"
- Davina Johnston, Science and Biology Secondary Teacher
🌟 Join the Savvy Teachers Mentorship Program and Transform Your Teaching Journey!
Teaching can be an overwhelming journey, especially in those first 5 years when the weight of inexperience, limited skills, and a lack of knowledge can make each day feel like a turbulent sea. I understand these challenges because, just like you, I once stood in that storm, questioning my own abilities.
The importance of a mentor becomes crystal clear during these early years. Without that guiding light, doubts and worries can cast shadows on your potential. I've been there, and I want you to know you're not alone.

Frequently Asked Questions
"I was so stressed and anxious about starting teaching and I felt like such a failure as I needed help in so many areas. I reached out to Rachel and had a chat about where I was at. This program has EVERYTHING with easy to watch training videos when you want and so much content in so many areas. The program helped me to go from feeling fake, to feeling professional. I learnt so much about behaviour and how to take feedback from my peers that helps me and identify when to ignore. I use this in all areas of life and Rachel is spot on with what she teaches you. I am much more confident in myself now and it is a great feeling."
- Belinda Halliday Early Childhood Teacher 2 years - 2020
"I was feeling ok about starting my new teaching position, did her course 'Nail Your Teacher Application' which got me the job I wanted. I joined the Savvy Teachers Mentorship Program, as I knew Rachel was great at what she does. I got so much value out of the behaviour management sections and don't feel overwhelmed dealing with disruptive behaviour anymore.
It feels really good to know that when something comes up at school and I feel anxious or unsure, I have support when I need and don't stress about it. My Principal and lead teacher even commented on my recent improvement and confidence, which goes to show the value of a mentor!"
-Louise Rochdale, First Year Teacher Year 5 QLD
"I love teaching but I suffer so much anxiety around behaviour management. I was not going well in my pracs, I would freeze when teaching and no matter what I tried, it didn't help me. My uni advisor even suggested I transfer to a different degree.
I began Rachel's program in August this year and she helped me focus on behaviour management. She suggested I start tutoring and volunteering weekly, to build confidence and I slowly used the systems from the program. It was like a light turned on inside me.
It was UNBELIEVABLE. Within 6 weeks of this program I did my next practical experience and it was amazing! I am forever grateful to Rachel and her work in the program to help me."
- Jessica H. Bachelor Of Education (Prim) 3rd year of study
