Getting settled into your new role as a teacher or school psychologist in a public school can be challenging. To help you during this time we have collected a range of ideas and suggestions from experienced teachers who wished they had had this information when they first started. Select the ones you feel will best suit your needs and those of your students.
Schools are complex places and often programs and support services are abbreviated to try and simplify things, but new staff can find this very confusing! Download the list of commonly used acronyms and keep it nearby to refer to when necessary.
There are many State and national associations providing professional support to teachers and school psychologists. Belonging to an association provides you with a network of contacts as well as information on the latest developments in your area of specialisation.
