    • I love teaching in this way allows children to be their best self, which makes you feel good as a teacher and you just want to keep building them up which is then building you up. What we are doing in schools at the moment is bringing out the best in everyone. Providing structure, routine and confidence. I learn so much from watching others, to then have others come into my class to observe my lessons and watch me, I am so open share and collaborate and build each other up, that is the best thing about this Catalyst Journey

    • I’ve seen a significant growth in student knowledge and deep understanding of the literacy concepts within my Stage 1 classroom. Student engagement is high due to the fast pace of delivery, visual scaffolds, and multisensory movement to embed concepts being taught.
