Mentoring and support at Tamaki College 2017/2018

As noted in my previous post I received mentoring and support from a Specialist Classroom Teacher, My HOD and one of the Deputy Principal’s during my time at Whangaparoa College.   Upon starting my teaching journey at Tamaki College I also had mentoring with the Specialist Classroom Teacher and my HOD.

Throughout 2017 I met regularly with Cheryl Harvey to discuss both challenges I faced in the classroom and registration. We met fortnightly throughout 2017 with a group of other beginning teachers. We generally discussed the registration process, literacy and culturally responsive pedagogy. Cheryl often arranged for guest speakers to come to these meetings to give support on particular topics. Here is a log I kept of these meetings:

Here is some ways I incorporated literacy into my teaching after the meetings with Marc and Cheryl on 10/5, 7/06 and 23/08 (Teaching as Inquiry, 2018). I also used points discussed in the meetings with Melba and Brent on 22/03/2017 and 9/08/17 

In addition to meeting with Cheryl Harvey I met regularly with my HOD and the Social Sciences department (once a fortnight) to discuss curriculum based issues.

Throughout terms 1 and 2, 2018 I have continued to met with Cheryl Harvey. However, once a month rather than fortnightly. I have been meeting ever other fortnight with my HOD one on one to get extra support with subject related issues. Here is a log I have kept of my meetings with my HOD:
