Our annual Xmas episode features a wonderful interview with two primary teacher retirees in their last week at work after 60+ years combined. Not to be missed!
In this episode we cited and discussed the following articles:
‘Girls win right to wear shorts and trousers to all Victorian state schools‘, Henrietta Cook, The Age, 12/9/17, viewed 12/9/17
‘School uniforms: who needs them?‘, William McKeith, Sydney Morning Herald, 14/9/17, viewed 15/9/17
‘Concern for vulnerable children as proportion of male teachers drops‘, Jane Gilmore, The Age, 9/9/17, viewed 9/9/17
‘Male teachers fear student contact for false abuse claims: experts‘, Monique Hore, Herald Sun, 4/8/17, viewed 17/9/17
‘2 Regular Teachers’ returns this coming week with a special spring episode. We have emerged from our long hibernation still intact, in touch and (hopefully) informed about the job we call a career. We hope to look at some of the big issues making news of late, chat about the school-based issues making teachers celebrate or fret during another busy term and (perhaps) see the return of the anecdote segment.
If you have not ‘un-liked’ or ‘un-followed’ us during the hiatus, we’d love to address any pressing topics, questions or anecdotes that have been on your mind. Comment on this post, send us a tweet (@rakt or @AdamLavars), leave a message on our Facebook page or if you work in Victoria, shoot us an email via edumail
The episode will be released the evening of Wednesday 20th September. You can find us on iTunes, PlayerFM, Podomatic and many other podcast platforms.
Hope you can join us!
It’s an interesting time for the ‘2 Regular Teachers’ podcast. One thing we’ve always prided ourselves on from the first episode was that the podcast and what we discussed, always reflected the life of a regular teacher and the myriad of roles we play.
With that in mind, we have decided to put the podcast on indefinite leave for the time being. We don’t see this as the end but just a moment in time that will pass. At this stage, we see ourselves possibly returning in late July and/or August.
No sinister motive, no ‘breakdown’. Never fear! It just feels like the right time to pause in our discussions about education for the moment.
Please stay with us and we’ll post updates when the time is right to provide updates on our possible return.
Thanks to everybody who has liked our page to this point and has joined in our discussions. We appreciate it!
Cheers for now!
Rick & Adam – 2 Regular Teachers
Meetings, Assessment, Correction, Term 2 planning, CPR training, Staff social gatherings…oh and a lost voice too.
We think it’s best if you just wait and catch up with us at the beginning of Term 2 – 3rd week of April. Hope you can join us then!
Meanwhile, go back and see what we were talking about this time last year…
This bulletin mentioned an article that is up for discussion and will be pulled apart during next week’s episode. Find the link below.
