UPDATE: I quit teaching in 2017 and therefore won't be adding any more content. I will however keep the site active for those people who still regularly use the resources pages! Best of luck to you all :)
Hello and thanks for visiting my website!
Starting out as a new teacher can be tough. Well, the profession in general can be tough! But in those first years you're still very much a learner yourself while also being responsible for all the young learners in your first classroom. Not an easy task.
I started this website to gather relevant and useful information for new teachers. The content will be aimed at New Zealand beginning primary teachers specifically, but will certainly be useful for others.
Some of this is information I received when I started. Some is what I've learnt over the last few years and wish I'd known earlier! Of course it is all from one perspective and doesn't replace advice from your mentor teachers.
If you find this site helpful please do pass the link on to others.
