You are not alone

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your physical and emotional health just because you want to be a great teacher.

Our aim is to help you overcome feelings of overwhelm, disorganisation, burnout, and all that encompasses being in the role of a teacher. We’re here to help you break out of the rigid and outdated structures of the school system, which is leaving your emotional and intuitive needs out of account – and, most of all, creating a disconnection from your authentic expression in the classroom.

"I understand what it’s like to feel alone in carrying the weight of a classroom, parents and administrators. Now, you no longer have to carry it by yourself." Peta

Hi, I’m Peta

That’s why I founded Beyond the Classroom in 2018 with the mission to support educators. After more than 20 years in a variety of roles and workplaces as a teacher, assistant principal, and principal, I combine my extensive background and experiences with a non-judgmental approach. I am passionate about making a change in education by supporting educators. I am equally committed to my own continuous professional and personal development to ensure that my knowledge and skills remain relevant to my work.
