Cost – $450 for 7 hours
The minimum recommended time for a teacher undertaking a Teaching with a Feather (TWAF) Journey is 7 hours face-to-face contact time with our leading mentor, Robyn Cotter.
This is bespoke support designed to fit in with you and your commitments. A teacher may choose to spend more than 7 hours participating in the mentor program. (Price on application). Up to 4 teachers from a school can nominate to participate in the program at the same time during a school term.
The schools leadership team work in consultation with Robyn to determine teacher selection and hours provided.
All teachers who submit an EOI will be considered for the program; however due to the strictly limited numbers there will be options available for placement in future programs.
The time frame for implementation for any teacher participating in the program will vary over the school term. Timetabling is discussed and negotiated between Robyn, the leadership team and the classroom teacher.
Note: Travel and accommodation expenses are invoiced separately if required.
The mentoring program includes face to face meetings with the classroom teacher, observation, feedback, teaching and modelling TWAF strategies, planning and team teaching.
Dates and times are negotiated with the classroom teacher as their Teaching with a Feather Journey unfolds.
All teachers participating in the program complete an initial Reflection Questionnaire before beginning the program. At the end of the program all participating teachers complete a TWAF Review and Survey.
NOTE: After participating in a Teaching with a Feather Journey teachers are encouraged to stay in contact with Robyn to ask questions, seek advice as required and share achievements.

Students are engaged in:

The day is ‘jam packed’ with TWAF strategies to show you how quickly and easily they can be implemented into your own teaching program. You will observe ‘first hand’ the positive responses from your students as they participate and use the strategies to their advantage.
Your students will immediately be provided with opportunities to become independent thinkers, make worthwhile decisions, problem solve, think differently, use negotiation skills to create win/win situations, work with others and make choices in real-life situations.
You will have a Teaching with a Feather package of strategies to use in your day-to-day teaching and management that will provide continuing positive outcomes for yourself and your students.

What happens during a TWAF Master Class?
- A Master Class is an opportunity to observe, participate and learn new teaching and management strategies.
- Teachers can submit questions relating to classroom management and teaching strategies before the Master Class.
- Teachers will learn strategies that can be implemented as soon as they walk into their classroom the next day.
Teaching with a Feather strategies are designed to enhance and use to advantage, the Physical and Communication Environment teachers create in classrooms.
Any person in a teaching role will learn and experience strategies that will challenge their current beliefs and traditional thinking concerning ‘what makes a good teacher?’ Teaching with a Feather provides ideas beyond the ‘traditional approach’ of teaching. The ideas are simple to implement, will make a difference to how teachers teach and students think, and deliver positive and unexpected outcomes.
