Her career purpose? “To get the best out of the child in the environment so they become the person they’re meant to be with every gift, talent and skill utilised.”
This can be a daunting, exhausting and overwhelming facet of teaching, especially in a crowded curriculum coupled with competing demands from students, parents, management and society. But by knowing your purpose, setting goals for your students and using a strategic plan in the classroom, you will better help yourself to stay motivated and stay on track. You’ll give both yourself and your student a focus to keep coming back to, and in turn help with your students’ engagement. You can better streamline your teaching, stay on a pathway when you’re feeling lost, have measurables to let you know you’re on the right track and most importantly increase your enjoyment and feeling of achievement in your work.
This session will go beyond the pedagogy and equip teachers with practical skills to take and use in their classrooms.
The greatest benefit of strategic planning is that as your enjoyment and motivation increases, so will that of your gifted students.
This event will be hosted at Bateman Primary School in the Library.
