What is your advice about? First Term Dos and Don’ts

  1. Do make sure you are well organised. Lessons will always run more smoothly if you’re not frantically finding resources or setting up.
  2. Do get to know the key staff in the school. Office staff, janitors, reprographics, … are all essential for a smooth first term.
  3. Don’t take on too much. During the first term it is tempting to say yes to everything. Focus on your classes.
  4. Don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions. You are not expected to know everything about teaching.
  5. Do try to mix with staff from other departments. It is nice to know colleagues from around the school. Makes you feel part of the whole school.
