THOUGHTS FOR PRESERVICE AND BEGINNING TEACHERS (52)

UNDERSTAND WHERE YOU ARE GOING (7) Essential Living Tools

These items might sound like a trite listing, but without them (and if they are not available for local purchase) life can become a lot harder. ‘Making do’ is not the answer.

Consider purchasing and taking items including the following when going to a distant or remote teaching appointment.

  1. nail clippers,
  2. hair cutting scissors,
  3. sufficient comfortable clothing (serviceable and practical without being over the top fashion wear or ragged, torn and stained clothing),
  4. a good supply of underwear,
  5. hats,
  6. sunscreen,
  7. deodorants,
  8. insect repellent,
  9. shower accessories,
  10. items relating to personal hygiene,
  11. other personal essentials sufficient to meet basic needs.
  12. These will tide new staff over until they are able to ascertain the local availability of these and other essentials.
  1. Footwear, with a strong recommendation on practical, sturdy and protective shoes or light boots.

Don’t wear thongs to work as a teacher.

The standards teachers set is a part of the way in which they will be appreciated and respected by the community.
