The Creative Teacher Project

An NQT Bringing Creativity to the Classroom

About

Ignite. Create. Discuss.

The Creative Teacher Project is an education blog focussing on innovation, joy and most importantly creativity in the classroom.

We all know that teaching is a demanding vocation. Through TCP, I aim to encourage myself and other newly qualified teachers to think about the way they approach their job, and promote personal satisfaction through meaningful connection with the content we teach and the students we teach it to.

I’m an Australian teacher specialising in Drama, who recently moved over from Secondary to Primary Teaching. I want to be a teacher that engages with my students, and models creativity not only in the classroom, but in my entire approach to education. I’m often described as enthusiastic, and I love connecting with others online!

If you would like to discuss anything that has appeared on my blog, please contact me via creativeteacherproject@gmail.com, and we can have a chat!

  5. Hey Sam Great blog with very useful content! Thanks for sharing!

    I’ve recently started a blog writing about theatre/drama games which are part of theatre pedagogy/drama in education and I address to all those adult people who want to do something creative as a hobby and may like to be involved in drama games in an amateur level.

    Cause drama games games are also for grown-ups!

    Through my blog, I intend to inform about all the various dimensions of theatre games, the way they are based on theatre itself, and their key benefits, as well as to share personal experience from the past four years that I participate in a Theatre Games Workshop.

    I would really like to hear your insights!

    • Hello! Thank you so much for your comment. I am really intrigued by your blog and will definitely take a look. I’ve really enjoyed getting back into drama games through my uni course, and as you say it’s so useful to understand their benefits and what we’re actually trying to get from them (apart from having some fun!) Do stay in touch, will definitely check out your blog!

      • Hello again! Thank you so much for your good words! Indeed, it’s important for someone to know why he/she is doing the whatever he/she is doing, otherwise it’s pointless! Only if we have a clear knowledge about what the drama games are as well as what their key benefits are, we’ll be able to practice them and get from them the best possible outcome – and not just fun, as you said! 😛 – Keep in touch, Sam! 🙂
