THE SAVVY TEACHERS' MENTORSHIP PROGRAM

With 24/7 online access, this program has teacher training in over 35 teaching areas, spread over 200+ bite size modules with easy to listen to videos, resources, tools, templates, explanations, links, strategies + more...

Specifically designed to support beginning teachers transitioning from pre-service to classroom teaching for the next 5 years.

The program is unlike any other, with instant access to the entire program once you join so you can start receiving support / mentoring in the area you need + LIFE TIME ACCESS WITH NO ONGOING COSTS.

Teachers access the training, tools and frameworks they need to feel competent and begin to alleviate burnout straight away. The content will close the gap between graduating and 'real world' teaching.

Starting with an empowering module where you are walked a process to establish your self confidence + create your teacher identify, your pedagogy and establish personal principles and boundaries.

From there, you begin the journey to developing your own teaching style, discover the effective strategies to build rapport quickly + learning how to plan for all types of lessons/students using my 4 step teaching framework.

One of my favourites areas is, teaching how to deal with disruptive students by understanding behaviour. Learning language to empower your students and gain clarity around learning styles + effective teaching strategies.

AND THE BEST PART... all the time you spend in the mentorship program becomes your professional development hours for teacher registration, using your time wisely to become a savvy confident teacher!

👍 🎓 👍

 

"With teacher burnout at an all time high + over 50% of teachers leaving their careers within the first 5 years due to lack of mentoring within schools, along with the huge gaps between university training and 'real world' teaching...

It is imperative that early career teachers take matters into their own hands, by finding a support system that is focussed on their success!

Maintaining passion, looking after mental health and evolving into a great teacher comes from having a mentor, who lights up your path ahead."

"I joined in March 2021 as I was struggling, which was hard to admit. My life was literally teaching, eating and sleeping. 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 given 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, 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. Rachel has made it 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 teaching framework is absolutely awesome. I don't know why they didn't teach us this at uni! I now understand the power of having a mentor."

"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! I only wish I found her earlier. "

- Michelle, C. ,Secondary Ed Science & Maths 3rd Year Teacher 2020

"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!"

Frequently Asked Questions


I am already so busy, how am I meant to fit this into my life?
I created this program for busy stressed beginning teachers. When I surveyed the 2000 beginning teachers, they told me that most of the time was spent on 'searching' for resources / lesson ideas / teaching strategies / templates / assessment layouts... with the little to no mentoring or support at school, they were spending hours upon hours on google or facebook groups trying to "figure out" what they needed to do, which led to less sleep and more anxiety because of the overwhelming about of 'unknowns'. This is why I structured the program to be (i) self paced (ii) navigated in what ever order you want (iii) rather than searching google, you log in to the program, go the section you need and find the module to support you. It will have resources, links, ideas, support and more, there for you! AND guess what... the time you spend learning as a beginning teacher, is your PD so I teach you how it aligns to the AITSL standards + how to record it and BOOM your valuable time is now being used effectively and productively!!!! I KNOW YOU WILL HAVE TIME TO USE THE COURSE as those who have joined tell me that they have reduced their time dramatically and now have more time for life, outside of teaching!
What if I am teaching year 2 now and need support for teaching year 6 in a year or so?
The program is structured and purpose built to support you teaching any grade or subject or age. Understanding the content for your grade will be 'unfamiliar' territory however the teaching framework, strategies and your teaching processes, will remain fairly similar. You will learn how to adjust the learning to ensure it's appropriate and challenging your students + there are modules for supporting you to work with students from prep to year 12.
What kind of support and mentoring is the program and is there specific software I need?
The program is delivery through video training, text with resources to download or links to follow. There are over 35 sections and each section has it broken down into modules, anywhere between 4 and 20 modules for each section. They vary in time but I have tried to make sure they are EFFECTIVE, SIMPLE + EASY to implement. You have as much time as you need to access the modules, as it is designed to support a teacher for their first 5 years. Each teacher's career is different, so there is no one size fits all pathway BUT there are frameworks, techniques and strategies that are absolute GAME CHANGERS in your first few years of teaching which I show you + the rest is there for you to access when you need. The program is run on a platform which you can access anywhere in the world via your iPad, computer and even phone if you download the app. Majority of the content is text and video training. You can listen in the car to modules or over the weekend. Resources are available to download and use instantly with the training video there to help you implement + gain clarity on how to teach or use in the classroom.
What if I need support for a topic I can't find?
We have a 24/7 support group where you can tag me and put up a post. Someone will respond and guide you to the module, if not me OR if there doesn't appear to be anything, I will chat with you and help you design what you need. I will then spend more time on it, and turn it into a module for everyone to access. I take my role as a mentor extremely seriously + I am here to support you!
Can I claim the cost on tax ?
YES! This program is a 100% tax deduction so keep your receipt and lodge with your tax for the financial year you paid/joined.
 

"JUST IN CASE YOU ENROL & ARE LOOKING FOR HELP IN A SPECIFIC AREA... AND IT IS NOT THERE... SIMPLY MESSAGE ME... & I WILL CREATE IT + ADD IT TO THE PROGRAM.

"I honestly thought that I would have more support when I started teaching but 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)

"I was so stressed and anxious about starting teaching and I felt like such a failure as I needed help in so many areas. 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 and confident."

- Belinda Halliday Early Childhood Teacher 2 years - 2019

"I was feeling ok about starting my new teaching position, as I follow Rachel's page, did her course 'Nail Your Teacher Application' which got me the job I wanted. I jumped in the Mentorship Club, as I knew Rachel was great at what she does & knows her stuff. I LOVE the behaviour management modules which gave me a totally new perspective around this area & introduced me to classroom culture! It is amazing & it should be something we learn at uni!!! I just know now that when something comes up at school and I am stressed or unsure, I have the back up of Rachel and the Group to help me and don't stress about it. My confidence is next level and it feels so good!"

-Louise Rochdale, First Year Teacher Year 5 QLD - 2019

"I love teaching but I suffer so much anxiety around behaviour management that it prevents me from teaching properly. I was not going well in my pracs, I would freeze and no matter what I tried, it didn't help me. My uni advisor even suggested I try 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 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 2019 - due to graduate mid 2020

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!"

Frequently Asked Questions


When does the course start and finish?
There is no start or finish date. This program is designed for beginning teachers to navigate the contents and modules in the areas they require mentoring and support. This course can be done when you want and is completely self-paced. You participate as much or as little as you want! We are going to hold weekly mentoring sessions in 2021 which is optional but available.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound ? Ok great! You got it ! ! ! After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course + its contents, for as long as you like. This is valued at over $5000 per year! I truly want you to see that this is an investment in YOU. That I am behind you, your dreams, your aspirations and your goals.
I am already busy and very time poor, and don't have any time to take on a course!
I totally understand how busy you are! This is why I made sure the course contents were self paced, bite size chunks of PD + a mixture of links, videos, reading and info graphics WITH a support group attached. This DOES NOT REQUIRE EXTRA TIME from you! In fact, it will SAVE YOU TIME! I designed it specifically for busy beginning teachers in their first 5 years with the highest flexibility + online learning. You access content that serves you instantly and provides you with solutions + mentoring in areas that you need now! Navigate the contents and modules as you please, reducing the time 'searching' time that most beginning teachers find themselves doing, which is around 15-25hrs extra per week, in comparison to their experienced peers. The Teaching templates alone for planning, assessing and working with parents, will reduce your time by around 100 hours in your first year!
What If I have been teaching more than 5 years?
We have had a lot of teachers contact us and ask if it is suitable for teachers who are experienced but would like to learn more from the topics covered in the overview. This course is designed for busy individuals who are starting their teaching career OR teachers returning to teaching after some time off OR perhaps they are lacking confidence in some areas of teaching, due to poor support or a negative experience! You will love the community and feeling nurtured + inspired as an educator are our core principles! I take my role of helping you sustain your passion for teaching and managing your teacher life (keeping the balance) extremely seriously and I will give you my all in support and mentoring! That's my promise!
Can I ClaimThe Cost At Tax Time ?
100% YES... keep your receipt and claim the entire amount you paid for this course AND any other Professional Development you do during the financial year, as you can claim it all and get $ back for investing in your career! Check with your accountant on how to do this as all your work expenses are claimable. I actually teach you 2 strategies to set this up for yourself, to make it really easy @ tax time!
YOUR MONEY BACK GUARANTEE
My purpose is to help beginning teachers (YOU) feel confident as an educator by sharing strategies, tools & documents, to be an effective educator. I am available 24/7 in our support group and as part of your membership, I am here to support you and help you get your confidence! If you join and complete our first 30 days of the course and you DON'T feel more confident than when you started, then I will give you back your money. It is impossible to build confidence in an area, without doing some work and applying new strategies to improve your skills. Therefore you need to listen to the modules and complete the small tasks in order to grow your knowledge, skills and feel confident BUT if none of the tools or strategies work for you, I will refund your payment! Just email me [email protected]
How Does The Mentorship Program Work ?
The program is run completely online, via a software program that you can access through an app (which you download from the app store) or online through an internet browser like Chrome. The program is accessible through your phone and desk top devices, when you want. All the contents for the modules that are complete (over 90 of them currently), are all ready to go for instant access. This program is a growing program, so you will see some modules are coming soon or under construction (currently around 8). Mentees are very valued in the program, so when they mention an area they require support / mentoring and it isn't available, I build it and add it! WHY..... I want this to be the ULTIMATE mentorship program for beginning teachers that enables you to be at your best and have a career you love! The 24/7 support group is currently on Facebook, however we are looking at a new location for this in early 2021 which we are super excited about! This new location is going to be through an APP and 100% confidential to all members. Mentoring live with me will occur over Zoom sessions and recordings will be placed inside the program for you to access if you miss them. You can also have one-on-one mentoring sessions with me @ 50% off the normal investment which is done also over zoom (optional and accessible for life). You receive access to all bonus materials upon enrolment to the program and access to the network. If you have any questions about the program please email me anytime [email protected]
What if I can't find support in an area I am looking for?
My aim is to create a mentorship program that supports you, where you need. If you can't find it, contact and I will either show you where it is OR I will build it! That's my promise to you!
