What is your advice about? NQT general advice

1: Have faith in yourself, in your thoughts, your ability and your knowledge. Teacher training can be rough and you got through that!

2: Ask for advice from a range of colleagues and then cherry pick what suits you and your teaching practice. Do not believe everything you read/hear… Bias is everywhere.

3: The to do list that races around your head at 11pm every night does not go away, ever. Go to sleep!

4: I know when you look around the staffroom mid-meeting that every other teacher looks calm. Remember even the most experienced teacher needs help along the way.

5: Find a balance as quickly as you can, take a day a week and make it yours. You will feel better and healthier for it.
