What is your advice about? General advice

1: No question is a silly question. Be sure to ask what’s on your mind.

2: Know your students – use the data but look beyond the data to discover who they really are and their potential. Also share a little of who you are too.

3: Get out of your classroom; whether it’s up to the staff room, dept office or another teacher’s classroom. Get out and about so you get to know staff and they get to know you.

4: Have a subject mentor and a buddy. The two are invaluable support in the department and while school.

5: Remember no one gets it perfectly right first time all of the time. Mistakes happen and that is ok, reflect on them and learn from them to develop your practice further.
