A little about Savvy Teachers...
Being a beginning teacher is a mixture of emotions... exciting, nervous, passion, anxious, worry, eagerness...
So many new topics and skills to master as well as navigate your new career can quickly become overwhelming and stressful, as you dedicate every living minute learning, planning, checking, reviewing, talking, searching.... suddenly your new career can become a heavy burden with very little support... SAVVY TEACHERS is here to change that!
This platform has been designed to provide much needed support & inspiration via professional development network for graduate and beginning teachers in their first 5 years of teaching!
"Our vision for Savvy Teachers Club, is to provide access to a growing library of online PD that is valuable, engaging + closes the gap between pre-service teaching and real world teaching. The PD is purpose built to empower early career teachers so they are less stressed, feel confident & maintain their contagious enthusiasm for teaching! "
Rachel MAC B.Ed
I am proud to be an Australian educator who embraces life and all that comes with it. I have been a primary education teacher since 2000 and focussed on 'special needs' education for the past 12 years. I have a love of learning and interested in exploring new strategies for teaching and learning as well as results based programs. I currently interested in brain plasticity and emotion regulation, along with mindfulness and NLP in the classroom.
I believe that teachers are the most valuable asset to education and as teachers we have the ability to reduce our industry's exit rate through working collaboratively and sharing our teaching journey with each other. I have maintained my passion for teaching and I want to show you how you can too!
TEACHING VIDEOS & COURSES
Collectively the knowledge and experience we have as teachers is incredible empowering and inspiring. Savvy Teachers is going to be introducing pod casts, online courses and using video to help educators share their knowledge and experience to mentor beginning teachers. We are really excited at the potential of our new platform!

I had a life changing experience in late 2016 and the ability to classroom teach was taken from me through traumatic experience. This was completely devastating as my passion and purpose in life is 'teaching' but with support and guidance, I reassessed my purpose and wanted to combine my love of teaching and learning in a way that still helped people.
This is how I began my journey as a mentor and starting the Beginning Teachers Mentor Network. I am so excited to be able to share what I've learnt in my teacher journey and I hope it saves beginning teachers hours of time and provide them with confidence and build a teacher tool belt. As a member of Savvy Teachers, this group is open 24/7 for advice, support, guidance, laughter, inspiration and real connections and friends.
