Your first year of teaching is going to be as challenging as it is rewarding. Being prepared is the key. This professional development session will look at how to manage all of the firsts you will encounter such as:
communicating effectively with parents
creating classroom management plans
working with Domain Leaders and Year Level Co-ordinators
