Get Smart: Becoming a smarter casual teacher

Author: Wanda Snitch, Publisher: Five Senses

Become a smarter casual teacher - quickly and confidently!

There is nothing ‘casual’ about being a casual teacher. Whether you are starting your classroom career with a period of casual teaching, or returning after an extended absence, casual teaching is not as easy as it sounds, especially at first. Often the first step is to gain confidence and know where to start.

Get Smart is based on personal experience as well as professional knowledge and contacts, and offers advice on how to build your confidence, get started and get into the schools where you want to work. It answers many of the questions in the minds of teachers entering or returning to teaching on a casual basis, and offers detailed and practical strategies from gaining approval right through to considering the next steps in your career.

Get Smart benefits schools as well as teachers, by preparing new casual teachers with information, advice and practical ideas for entering the classroom ready to teach and become a valuable member of the school community.
