Term 1, 2018 - Happy New Year!

As a CRT are you ready to start the new year with vim, vigour and vitality? Well if you are, plan ahead; plan for enjoyment, challenges and triumphs. Take control and work out what you want to "give" in 2018, and what you want to "be given" in 2018. Set your sights high and work proactively towards achieving your goals.

Your year will be a fulfilling one if you have clear direction and know what you want. 2018 will be the year that you want it to be, if you navigate confidently one step at a time.

Make the most of every opportunity that comes your way.

Term 4, 2017 - Well, this term has had a focus again, on "Teacher Registration Renewal", and everything that goes with it. It has been a time to reflect on: Code of Ethics, Code of Conduct and Teacher Professionalism.

Hannah Galloway (Senior Standards Advisor / Regulatory Services - VIT) has reminded us of our "Duty of Care" and obligation to present "Best Teaching Practice" at all times in educational environments.

With that in mind, let's finish the school year with enthusiasm, vigour and vitality.

Enjoy yourself in the classroom!

Term 3, 2017 - Well this term has had a steady focus on practical and interesting PDs, "Teacher Registration Renewal", and staying fit and healthy during the winter months. 

We set our goals earlier this year, and have had to creatively stay focussed and challenged by new and unexpected events. Remember to embrace new learning; it will bring out the best in you.

Term 2, 2017 - The Three "Rs": Re-vitalise, Re-energise and Re-invent

Term 2 is an opportunity for you to re-invent yourself.

Take on board PD offerings, update your knowledge of pedagogy, and prepare yourself physically and mentally to step forward into the new term, with re-energised passion and interest.

Use your holidays well, have fun and relax, and prepare yourself to accept the challenges ahead. Get ready to put the "best you" on display.

Term 1, 2017 - Welcome to a new year!

This year is shaping up to be a great one. The Victorian Curriculum will be fully adopted and in use by all Victorian schools, which means that you have to be 'current'. So, do your homework, jump online and find out what changes have been implemented. Any independent research that you do, will give you a 'point of difference' when going for a CRT position. 

Now is a good time to do some achievable 'goal-setting'. Look at what you will be able to take to any teaching position: passion, experience, talent and commitment. Make sure that you let schools know what you have to offer.

Have a great year!

Term 4, 2016 - Your 'Wish List'

It is time to look around you and decide what is on your "Wish List" for this final term. Now is your opportunity to show people the person you truly are.

If you have teaching commitments for this term, then give everything that you do 100%. If you do not have any CRT commitments, then consider doing voluntary work in places where you will be needed and appreciated.

Enjoy yourself, surround yourself with people who value 'you', and start thinking about what you could put into place in preparation for next year.

Have fun!

Term 3, 2016 - Look after yourself and your peers!
It is that time of the year when we have to be mindful of our own health and sense of well-being. As educators, we cannot look after our students, if we cannot look after ourselves.

Remember that balance in our lives can only be achieved when we keep everything in perspective. Enjoy the new term ahead.
