What is your advice about? Essential survival skills for the first year

1: Magpie ideas. Visit other people’s classrooms, listen to conversations in the staff room and steal what works.

2: Spend 5 minutes at the end of the day identifying 5 things that went well. Choose one thing you will try to develop. Just one.

3: Ask questions. Schools are busy, complex organisations so you need to be proactive in seeing out information.

4: Think about your unique selling point. What is it that you bring to the classroom? Be proud of being you.

5: Pace yourself physically. Don’t say yes to everything, say I’d like to in the future.
