As teachers, we are acutely aware of the needs of our pupils. Creating an environment where they feel safe and free to be themselves, being the priority.
Teaching is hard work, there are pressures, There are variables. Usually 30 of them in front of you at any one time and if youâre a secondary teacher, it could be 6 or 7 different groups of 30 variables in a day.
There are a couple of weeks until the children break up. Lots of lovely things on the calendar and our long awaited holiday to look forward to. Better make a list. Don't want to miss anything, forget to do something or let anyone down.
I was at a conference this week with about a hundred other teachers. There was the usual day-out buzz in the air as we arrived at the hotel to be registered, get our badge and that wonderful, first cup of coffee. You know the one.
First and most importantly, thank you. From the bottom of my heart, for reading, sharing and being so encouraging about my first story. It means so much that you took the time to read it and has spurred on a second one!.
