Beginner teachers – common issues and strategies

Last week, three early career teachers shared a piece of advice with educators who are new to the profession.

Today we hear from Anna Bennett, who runs workshops for early career teachers which focus on equipping them with the tools and skills required in the classroom.

After a recent workshop at ACER, Bennett spoke to Teacher about some common issues and questions that tend to arise, and useful strategies.


Think back to your first year of teaching: What were the main challenges you faced? Was there a strategy you used that you found beneficial?
