Dear %recipient.subscriber_first_name%,

Thank you for participating in the Celebrity Teacher Introductory Workshop: Teacher Resilience and Wellbeing at Georges River College on Friday 15 August. I really enjoyed meeting each of you and learning about what is the experience of beginning teachers across the four campuses and what is both shared and different with other teachers I have met across Australia. 

I also had a lot of fun!

The feedback each of you has provided has been really valuable and a summary report is being provided to Carol Spittles.

I hope I get a chance to work with each of you very soon. Don't forget to tell other teachers about the workshop, both in the college and teachers in other schools. My flyer and upcoming dates are below.

What is this workshop?

Celebrity Teacher gives teachers the confidence to bring their best self to the classroom and the staffroom. Now is the time to register your staff in our new Introductory Workshop: Teacher Resilience and Wellbeing and promote a commitment to prioritising self-care, collaboration and maintaining a sustainable life-work balance.

This event is targeted at beginning teachers (pre-service to 5 years). However, teachers at any stage of their career will benefit from the insights and activities in this workshop. Don’t wait, register now!

Celebrity Teacher draws on the latest research in teacher retention, resilience and wellbeing, and positive psychology. Each session will unpack some of the barriers that teachers experience at school.

What is a Celebrity Teacher?

A Celebrity Teacher is that teacher who is comfortable in their own skin; someone who brings their best self to the classroom to inspire student learning. Think of it like a Celebrity Chef - that skilled chef that we want to learn from, that we want to cook like, that gets us excited about cooking.


What are teachers saying about us?

An exciting and engaging workshop that develops a variety of strategies for new scheme teachers to deal with the pressures of becoming a teacher whether it be in the classroom, staffroom or within their personal life. A must have experience for all teachers at the beginning of their careers!

What does the day involve?

Surfacing Beliefs

Session 2
Flexible Thinking

Session 3
Hope & Optimism

Session 4
Relationships

- Teacher resilience
- 7 resilience factors
- Beliefs & emotions

- Thinking traps
- Flexible thinking

- Self-efficacy
- Values & vocation
- Strengths & self-care

During Session 1 we look at the impact which our beliefs have on resilience. ‘Learning your ABCs’ is a resilience skill which explores the connection between beliefs, emotions and behaviour.

In Session 2 we unpack seven thinking traps that reduce our resilience, and explore how seeking accurate and flexible alternatives enable greater use of assertive communication strategies.

Session 3 focuses on the confidence and self-belief we bring to our work. Teachers connect with their vocational calling, prioritise self-care and explore positive psychology exercises.

Session 4 explores the skills of empathic conversation and the importance of connection and courage. We conclude the day by completing an action plan and selecting a short-term goal for reaching out professionally.
