‘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.
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!
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…
With special guests Tony Foster, Andy McNeilly and, as always at Christmas, John Pearce.
In this episode, John discussed a book creation project he conducted with students back in the 1990’s. Below is a link to the example he brought along to the podcast. A wonderful Christmas story ‘with a twist’, as John pointed out, created by a Year 3/4 student. Enjoy!
