When & Where
Celebrity Teacher helps you to bring your best self to the classroom and the staffroom.
Celebrity Teacher focuses on teacher wellbeing, the process of building teacher resilience and positive teacher identity, especially in the early years of a teacher's career. Celebrity Teacher is presented by Dean McManus and offers workshops, coaching and other professional learning opportunitities for teachers.
Dean has been a secondary and primary music teacher for 18 years and has recently retrained in psychology through Charles Sturt University and is completing a Diploma of Life Coaching through the Life Coaching Academy. Dean also has experience as a trainer with Mind Matters (Principals Australia), having spent a year presenting to school communities across Australia on the importance of a whole-school approach to mental health and wellbeing.
Dean draws on his own personal experiences of emotional burnout and recovery throughout various stages of his career as a teacher and the inspiring real-life stories of the beginning teachers that Dean has interviewed in the development of Celebrity Teacher. These stories are the key motivation for Dean in helping beginning teachers lead happier, healthier and more rewarding lives, and ultimately improve educational outcomes for students.
