Well if you didn’t know yet, I might as well tell you one of my secrets, I LOVE PREZIS! And I love talking about becoming a teacher. So a Prezi about becoming a teacher is like peanut butter and banana… they belong together.
While tutoring on the Graduate Diploma of Primary Teaching at Deakin with @kath_morris, I made this Prezi to share with my students. Compiling such a list was extremely reflective and made me forever grateful for the teachers and friends I have met on my path to becoming a teacher. It made me grateful for the inspirational teachers and principals I am lucky to work with.
So this 10 step Guide for Graduates became a list of inspirations of things in my first year teaching in Australia that were memorable and worthwhile. It also became a list of minor frustrations, things that I wish someone had forewarned me about! Some of these warnings may have been useless perhaps, as it is as much about the journey as it is about the destination. But, I thought I would share with other graduates out there some of what I learned, and feel free to pass on to share with graduates you may know. I hope even if one thing strikes a chord with a Grad, it will add to the inspiration pile and help avoid more in the frustration pile.
