  1. Hi guys,

    I loved this episode! I’ve been catching up on all the episodes from last year and am finding it very relevant to the issues that are happening in my school each day. I am a grad teacher in Melbourne and am more than happy to have a chat/email conversation with you about the different experiences I’ve had this year.


    • Hi Claire,
      It’s great (and humbling) to hear that as as first year grad, you are getting lots out of our previous episodes. We try really hard to keep a foot in that area and make sure we remember and acknowledge that first and second year in the job.
      We will certainly keep you in mind for a chat about it. Perhaps later in the year when you are coming to the end of your first year. We have Skyped a segment before and recorded the audio for the show so that could be an option.
      Good luck for the remainder of the year and keep on listening! 🙂
      Adam & Rick
