Forever my Mentor

This is a conversation that I have with my very first mentor teacher from my teaching rounds all the way back in 2007. Karen's education has spanned from her high school days in the 1960s to 1987-2012 teaching senior English and Australian Studies to now, where she is currently studying a Masters of Theology. Education has been an important part of her life as a vocation, a way to lift her out of challenging times as well as affording her a sense of direction in retirement. We talk about our time together as colleagues as well as our love of the classroom and the students we have taught. If you haven't listened to her blog episode: Education Appreciation, make sure sure you check it out. A really personal conversation close to my heart that I know you will love. Also, my small business shout out to The Sweet Smash Co. Katie from the episode Inspired and Nervous, Pre Service side hustle. Check out the business on Instagram . Highly recommend! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/laura4712/message

MEGG THOMPSON the Behaviour Master (Part 1)

Demolition and Poetry

My shout out to a small Melbourne family business: Sweet Dispostion - for all of your lolly box and grazing plate needs now and for the festive season. My conversation today is with Reuben Cullen. He is a tradie by day who writes poetry as a form of expression in his spare time. He has just published his first childrens book and is writing a script for a short film on the more challenging experiences in his life. Reuben talks about being lost in the education system, confusing happiness with drugs and alcohol consumption. The importance of true connections and having to hit rock bottom in order to come back home to himself. One of the more authentic conversations I have had and I know Reuben's story is not necessarily a unique one, but one that needs to be heard so that we can shift the outcome of these normalised, yet detrimental behaviours in our society.

Demolition and Poetry

Blog 10 Losing Touch

Welcome to the blog episode. I read out my blog: Losing Touch all about how we begin to reframe adolescent issues through an adult lens and how detrimental that can be. I also introduce my desire to inject back into small businesses now that Melbourne is opening up again. I will be doing some shout outs to recommended businesses that you can support. I also wanted to get behind a fantastic initiative by @mrvandermonde in Melbourne. See his post here to get involved in his Melbourne small business give away. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/laura4712/message

Leap of Faith

What happens if you qualify as a teacher, get into your own classroom and it doesn't feel right? In the first five years of teaching there is a mass exodus of educators. Teacher burn out is real as well as the stark realisaion by those that used teaching as a back up job, that it is anything but. Today I talk to one of those people that left the profession and what roles she was awarded based on her background in education. We discuss the importance of listening to that nagging voice within that tells you you're not being true to yourself and having the courage to follow even though you don't know where it will lead you. Sarah is honest, wise and taught me so much about the lessons of life. She is truly extraordinary. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/laura4712/message

Please send a short audio clip (no longer than a minute) to tutoringbylaura@outlook.com.
