We'd like to introduce our new President Kia Sheidow.
Kia was the Vice President of Adolescent Success and is The Head of Middle School at Pembroke in South Australia. She is also the recipient of the 2019 Adolescent Success Middle Years Leader of the Year.
If you are a NSW middle years educator and are looking for a leadership opportunity, we are seeking a General Member to join our management committee.
Contact our Executive Officer on email@example.com if you would like more information.
Join to belong to a network of educators, businesses and academics who believe that the middle years of schooling are unique and teaching this age group requires specific skills and attributes. Our strength is in our collective network and we welcome new members.
The Middle Years Diagnostic and Improvement Tool is designed to encourage reflective, evidence based conversations about what is current practice in the school; prioritise opportunities for improvement; and devise an action plan to implement change. The Middle Years School Improvement Diagnostic Tool encourages recognition of strengths and identification of areas of improvement.
We learn by story telling. We know that story telling inspires our students. Stories also inspire educators to be and do better.
The Australian Journal of Middle Schooling is a space for teachers and leaders in the middle years to share their story of teaching adolescents. It is also a window into the middle years in other schools.
Ideas for story telling:
It doesn't take much. Think of what you are proud of and be proud to share it.
If you are a bit unsure of writing an article for a published journal we will help you. Just get in contact with Liz Benson (executiveofficer@adolescentsuccess).
