Welcome to the new Survive & Thrive. Survivethrive.on.ca is designed to be an easily accessible resource for beginning teachers, occasional teachers, mentors and teacher candidates. You’ll find hands-on information that will be of value in the classroom, in dealing with colleagues, parents and others, and in managing your work-life balance. We’ve revamped and streamlined the site to better reflect what teachers have told us they’re interested in, but we’re always looking to improve. If you have any thoughts or would like to suggest resources that you think should be included, please be sure to contact us. The French version of this site is currently in development and will be coming soon.
