    Secure Attachments and Student Wellbeing with Dr Billy Garvey

    In this episode, I get the privilege of sitting down to talk with Dr. Billy Garvey, a renowned developmental paediatrician who works for the Royal Children's Hospital. Billy shares invaluable insights on the critical role educators play in supporting children and how to create classrooms full of trust and emotional safety.
    We explore how emotional intelligence, understanding, and connection can transform the classroom for vulnerable children. We talk about the significance of nurturing secure attachments, the role of resilience in learning, and the power of meeting kids where they are.
    What You'll Learn:
    The importance of safety and trust and strategies for creating a supportive classroom environment. How to be curious and responsive to children’s behaviours so that you can truly understand social and emotional development. Why punitive measures fail and what to do instead. How teachers can lead by example in self-awareness and emotional regulation to model emotional intelligence. Why there needs to be a balance in educator well-being and student support and how schools are getting it wrong. The power of genuine connections between teachers and students and practical advice for handling trauma, building resilience, and setting developmentally appropriate expectations. Join us for a conversation that will to enlighten, inspire, and empower educators to make a lasting difference.

    BACK TO SCHOOL SERIES New Teacher, you don't have Imposter Syndrome...

    BACK TO SCHOOL SERIES New Teacher, you don't have Imposter Syndrome...

    Hello, Beautiful People! Welcome back to Let's Get School! Today's episode might stir some emotions, but stick around as we delve into a topic that's crucial for new teachers.
    Have you ever felt like you're not cut out for teaching? That nagging feeling of inadequacy creeping in? Well, let's talk about it.
    Imposter Syndrome is a psychological phenomenon where individuals doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a "fraud" despite evidence of their competence. Interestingly, new teachers often experience a different set of challenges rather than classical Imposter Syndrome.
    Why New Teachers Don't Typically Experience Imposter Syndrome: Lack of Previous Success: Imposter Syndrome often stems from a history of achievement and success. However, for new teachers, entering the field with limited experience can mean they haven't had the opportunity to establish a track record of accomplishments to doubt.
    Unequipped Preparation: Many new teachers find themselves feeling inept not because they doubt their abilities but because they were ill-prepared by their university education. The feeling of being unequipped or unprepared for the job can overshadow feelings of being a "fraud."
     
    So rather than having Imposter Syndrome, you are most likely feeling like a fraud and doubting yourself because you have been ill-prepared for your new role as a teacher!

Em speaks to it all 🙏

Em’s podcast is one i recommend to all, as a newly grad ECT, i assure you this is what i listen to during my daily commute! Understanding and supporting children’s behaviours is a critical aspect of working with any children and that’s exactly what Em helps to do. Plus teacher wellbeing, organisation, inclusive and trauma informed practice, Em speaks to it all 🙏

Helping me be confident to be the teacher I want to be

I’m so glad I came across your resources. I’m going into my second year of teaching and I feel like I definitely let other teachers influence my practise and made me act in a way that wasn’t true to the teacher that I wanted to be and I started using strategies that I didn’t agree with. I noticed over the year that I was getting more frustrated and exhausted because I was overwhelmed, I didn’t agree with what I want doing and I felt so unauthentic. This year I’m excited to hopefully work with you and get back on track and become the teacher that I want to be. Thank you!

Amazing! For teachers of all experience levels!

This podcast is a brilliant resource for teachers - from grads to teachers who have been teaching for 10+ years. Em’s conversational tone is so relatable and has you feeling like you’re listening to a conversation between friends. She gives you practical tips and advice whilst also leaving you feeling like you’re doing a great job. An advocate for all teachers!
