"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 in my second year. 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 great marks.
Rachel showed me how it's the 'system' that letting new teachers down and nothing to do with my ability. Fast forward to now and I love teaching because I found the right support!
Highly recommend the mentorship program to any new teacher and be aware that the education system does not support us like we need, so don't make the same mistake I did and think it's you!"

"I joined in March 2021 as I was struggling, which was hard to admit. 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 been a life saver and gave me much needed direction in so many areas. Instead of searching for hours on the internet for things without knowing what is going to work. Now I log into the program which is like an online library, I 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."
- Maria, F, First Year Teaching 2021
"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 know 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) started teaching Jan 2021
"Having no mentor cost me my mental health! Rachel turned that around for me and her kindness is beyond anything I've experienced before 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. If you are reading this because you are exhausted, you will be glad you joined."

FROM THE FOUNDER
"This program is for beginning & graduate teachers who feel overwhelmed, stressed and ill-equipped, just like I did when I started teaching.
I remember feeling so excited about teaching, but when I stepped into the classroom and realised all the areas I was expected to be competent in, I quickly became overwhelmed and anxious to say the least. I felt like I was dropped in the deep end and everything I had just spent years learning, was no help at all! I struggled with planning, behaviour management, getting structures and processes in place for simple things, like homework, marking, talking to parents, how to set up rotations and so much more. I remember feeling like a failure only a short time into my career and really alone.
I remember trying to figure it out myself because I thought that after spending the last 4 years studying, I should be capable and everyone else was expecting me to know all this teaching stuff. I didn't have Google, Pinterest or even Facebook or Instagram when I started (2001), gosh I feel old now :)
All I had was old text books, talking to my peers and asking experienced teachers but nobody had the time to help me. The help I did get, was not consistent, consecutive nor gave me the right resources and strategies to deal with the issues as quickly as I needed. If anything, I got more confused and overwhelmed with teachers telling me to just copy their work as I was "doing it wrong". I suddenly felt that perhaps I was not cut out for teaching!
I needed someone to listen to me, guide me, give me advice and tools but let me make mistakes. Listen to my crazy day and tell me "HOW" to do things next time, to make it better.
I needed a mentor to go to, as a sounding board and make sure I was on the right track. Where I could get great feedback with no judgement, just constructive actionable feedback to reduce my stress. Show me where to find great resources, where to improve, show me the 'how' and save me hours of time... PLEASE!!!!!
I had not had a weekend off from teaching for months and found myself in a cycle of not sleeping properly, planning right through to the late night and my eating habits were horrible!!!!
I wish I had someone to encourage me in the right direction with their experiences and knowledge, know my goals and help me find my way as a teacher.
What a long and challenging journey it has been BUT I wouldn't have it any other way, as it's my life. With hours upon hours of researching & learning the hard way, plus crying, tears, cheering, laughter and lots of high fives and dancing!!! Happy to say that after 20+ years, I have helped hundreds of students, made more mistakes than I ever thought possible BUT they have all impacted my life to shape me into the teacher I am today.
I got to where I am now @ age 43 due to the tenacity and resilience I have developed, based on the many mistakes and challenges in my life which have made me a better human. I have learnt that there are certain tools & strategies for life that can change your thinking, perspective & make your life extremely enjoyable and impactful (if that's a word ).
I also have the same amount of passion (if not more) than when I started teaching! That goes for life too! I love that as part of the Savvy Teachers Club, I often support my mentees through life situations like being a single mum, navigating health issues and developing mindset for mental health, which help them evolve into the amazing individuals they were meant to be.
Being part of your transformation is truly precious to me!!!
In this Mentorship Program I share everything I spent my life discovering, trialling, testing, creating, failing, succeeding and learning to make YOUR teacher journey easier than mine BUT with the space to grow into the educator you were meant to be! I provide you with the foundation to begin your teaching career and fill the gaps between studying to be a teacher and transitioning to classroom teaching.
With Teacher burnout rates at their highest EVER and teacher's health suffering as a result, never before has mentoring been more important in starting your teacher life!
I have purposely designed this program so it is accessible anywhere, anytime and our support group is 24/7 online where you connect daily, proving you support teachers where you need it specifically and assist you to have a long, healthy and happy career.
I bring a new style of mentoring in the self paced program & support chat group!
It is a great time to be a teacher & it would be my pleasure to be part of your journey!"
FOUNDER OF SAVVY TEACHERS
"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 (2019)
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 - 2021
"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."
