“If there’s one thing I can guarantee in your first year, it’s that you will experience every emotion possible. Fear should never be the first… always start with excitement!” Those words were the best piece of advice I was given as I stepped into my first teaching role and I wrote this book to show you the same. While teaching is a rollercoaster, the rewarding career you are about to embark on will be filled with fun, challenge, success, satisfaction and much more.
Each chapter in this funny book explores an element of the school year that any new primary teacher could encounter during their first year in the classroom. From assemblies to trips, observations to Ofsted, and Christmas performances to performance reviews, each topic is bursting with anecdotes (with all of the funny bits left in) and provides tips and techniques to help you navigate the Early Career Framework.
This book is here to be a companion and a guide as you approach your first teaching role and to support you both professionally and personally.
