As a new teacher in your first few years of teaching, you have A LOT on your plate. You just want to do what’s best for your students.
But, you're struggling with:
Being a new teacher is not easy, but it is possible to manage your time better, implement engaging activities and get on top of your classroom management…..with the right kind of support!
Wouldn't you love to have access to a resource library designed for new teachers?
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a community where you can go to ask those questions that you’re not sure about?
Imagine if you had a set of innovative ideas at your fingertips ready to motivate and engage both you and your students.
Reflecting on my first year of teaching is enough to cause me to break out in a sweat! I only wish I had Top Notch Teaching’s New Teacher Support Program at my fingertips to help me navigate that difficult first year. From managing the classroom environment and student behavior to effective ways to plan for a class yet cater for individual students… there’s a lot to consider.
When it comes to selecting teaching resources from the abundance available on the internet, you want to ensure you are choosing the best. The New Teacher Support Program is developed by Melinda Crean, an experienced teacher who has experienced firsthand the trials and tribulations of those first few years of teaching. Melinda’s tales of her first year teaching are compelling, and she not only survived, but thrived, and has carefully constructed an online community to assist you to be confident and successful as you embark on what can only be described as a challenging yet rewarding journey.
As an experienced teacher, I can tell you I’m very excited to be joining your online community. I am thrilled Melinda has given us all exclusive access to her highly engaging and effective resources, that have been developed as a result of evidenced based research.
You'll never have days again where you don't know how to manage a tricky behavior, or where you just want to give up! You'll be learning from other teachers in the areas where you're not as strong. Together, our collective knowledge and experience are much more powerful than if you were doing this on your own.
You'll learn from peers and experts who have achieved what you want to achieve. The program is intentionally designed for you to learn from experienced teachers as well as gain additional perspectives from other new teachers at the same time.
You'll be given the structure you need to make a plan for self-improvement, apply any new systems, behaviors or actions into your teaching and track your progress. This is not just a theory program, but you will be provided with the tools you need to take action and see results.

Reflection is a significant part of the teaching cycle and it’s important to seek feedback and advice to self-evaluate for self-improvement.
This section of the program will help you to reflect on what your teaching looks like today. As part of this section, there is a ‘Teaching Self- Evaluation’ workbook for you to download and complete.
The evaluation will help you work out your areas of strength as well as the areas you would like to focus for improvement.
Bonus material will be added to the program throughout the year. Some of the bonuses include:
