About the Author
Acing Your NQT Year was created by Valerie Mullen, an experienced primary school teacher. She has taught in all settings, including mainstream, ASD classes, and SET.
Valerie has always had an interest in supporting student teachers and newly qualified teachers, and has done so through her educational website, www.muinteoirvalerie.com, for the past nine years.
Múinteoir Valerie is one of the leading platforms in Ireland for teachers to find encouragement, support and teaching ideas and resources. Valerie has supported and encouraged countless teachers throughout the years, through social media, webinars and through her website. This book was written in response to the many messages Valerie receives from teachers asking for support. Her unique insight on issues and challenges teachers are facing, and being a teacher in the classroom herself, made Valerie realise the need for a practical teaching guide, with resources and templates to make the teacher’s life easier in a busy classroom.
