"Maths Doesn't Have to Hurt"


 Looking Ahead to 2022

Business as Usual and Upcoming Webinars

2022 is underway and the start of the school year is coming up fast. For most teachers, it’s the time of year when we try and sort out our plans for the teaching semester ahead. If you’re feeling overwhelmed or are unsure how to make your lessons more interesting, there’s good news!
RVEC and Michael Minas from Love Maths Enterprises will once again be running webinars throughout the year, and RVEC will be running both in-person (where possible) and online to help you optimise your maths teaching and get the most out of your students. Our recent place value webinars in February where a huge success, and after multiple requests, I’ve now added a digital resources section to the resource page, where you can find the much-sought-after place value cards, with more resources to be added in the near future. Print out a set for your classroom here
These cards, and the activities covered in the recent place value webinars, will link directly to upcoming addition and subtraction webinars on March 7th (F-2) and March 10th (3-6).

Teachers to Leaders

Graduate Teacher Conference


Over the summer break, I joined a new teaching initiative called Teachers to Leaders, a program of highly informative online content to help develop the teaching skills of both new and experienced teachers alike. Teachers to Leaders will be hosting an all-day Graduate Teacher Conference on the 11th of April this year, from 9am to 3pm, at the Settlers Run Golf and Country Club in Botanic Ridge, Victoria (or online if restrictions change). Designed for graduate teachers in their first year of teaching, three highly experienced teaching professionals will be presenting, including myself, Julie Shepherd, and Dave Vinegrad.

If you’re a graduate teacher yourself, or run a school with a number of graduate teachers just starting out, head to the Teachers to Leaders website here for more details about this unmissable opportunity, or take a look at the flyer here.
