Beginning teachers are always told to ensure they find the right school culture for them. What does this mean? For a beginning teacher, you may not know what school culture actually suits you?
On this #ASKPRACEANYTHING snapshot, a serving HOD shares his advice about finding a school with the right culture for you!
In many ways, you have to jump into the frying pan to see if a school culture is right for you or not.
As you get more experienced, you will begin to know your own pedagogical philosophy more and what type of school fits you.
Do not judge yourself off of one school’s opinion. A disconnect may not reflect on you. Another school may connect with you more.
Experiment with different school contexts and let the profession allow you to travel.
Do thorough research before applying for a school.
