#47: How teachers are set up to fail, what SHOULD be included in teacher training, and what a trauma-informed approach looks like in action. A discussion with Em Gentle, founder of The Grad Guide

Today I am joined on the podcast with Em Gentle, a graduate teacher mentor, fellow edu-podcaster, and founder of the grad guide where she supports new teachers adopt a trauma informed approach to teaching.  In today’s episode we go on all the rants including: What teachers should be taught in teacher preparation programs before entering the professionOur 'inherited' classroom management and teacher guilt around itWhat a trauma informed approach looks like in actionWhat we see new teachers struggle with the most (self-doubt, overwhelm, a lack of behaviour support) andWhat things we would recommend for new teachers to know and do with their classroom management and teaching and learning.Although new teachers are definitely the focus for this episode, it is just as valuable for all teachers. After all, it is simply about great teaching.
