Learning How to Support Other Teachers

Teaching is a rewarding job, but it’s also one of the most stressful. You will spend large amounts of time working on your own with a large class full of children, so there is a lot of responsibility that is entirely on you. If you are going to be a good teacher, then it is always best to have a good support network around you. This will really help you to succeed and to understand where you can improve and take charge of children’s learning.

You must also learn to support your colleagues so you can all get the most out of working together. Spend time talking to them all, and ask them how they are finding work. It could be as simple as making time to tell them about how you deal with a particular pupil, or you might want to pool resources. By having open conversations, you can all support each other better.
