In the final episode of the NZPETeachercast for 2016, I get to interview a beginning teacher from Tamaki College in Auckland, NZ. Georgia Dougherty is a Health and PE teacher who is just wrapping up her first year in the profession. She is a teacher who is very reflective, has spent a considerable amount of time seeking to learn and develop her own practice, and in less than a year, is already considered a role model for those of us trying to be more innovative with our students. Throughout this episode we pull apart Georgia’s first year as a teacher and consider some of the successes and challenges she has faced over the last 12 months.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas and I want to thank everyone for taking the time to listen in over the last 12 episodes. Tune in again in February 2017 for the start of a new teaching year, and more inspiring educators!
