The things they don’t teach you at uni when studying teaching
Teacher life can’t really be truly understood until you set foot in the classroom and start to give it a go yourself.
It is then that early career teachers discover that their teaching degree really didn’t teach them everything they needed to know about the day-to-day running of the classroom.
From classroom management, to how to organise digital files, to how to get your class from A to B quickly and quietly...
The first few years in the classroom is a BIG learning curve.
Those tricks of the trade that look like second nature to veteran teachers have been slowly curated and learned over time. Think of it as a toolkit that is continually added to year after year.
One of our passions here at Rainbow ow Sky Creations is helping beginning teachers. We want you to feel prepared, confident and ready to take on all the challenges teaching may throw your way. So, we created a TikTok series called:
“Things that weren’t covered in your teaching degree”
We are here to give you a shortcut through the steep learning curve. We have created all sorts of short videos to help classroom newbies, and there are more to come.
Here are some of our most popular ones:
How to manage morning routines
How to move your students around the school quietly
What do I ACTUALLY need as a new teacher?
How to keep students engaged on the carpet
What to do when Staff Meetings are overwhelming.
What do I put in my Assessment folder?
What other new teachers are saying about the series on TikTok:
“This info is SO helpful for new teachers” Amarie
“Love these ideas” Britt Louise
“So helpful, thank you” Annalise
“Living for these videos!! Still got another couple of years to go in my degree but love learning more” Casey
“Thank you so much for these videos! They’re amazing and so helpful”
So, what are you waiting for? Come and join the fun over on TikTok.
