As teachers, we're working with hundreds, if not thousands of people every day. The chances of interacting with people who display behaviour we don't agree with (whether coming from students or colleagues!) is very high.

As teachers, we are so emotionally invested in our jobs that it can feel almost impossible to switch off our teacher brain and relax when we get home. This can create long term negative effects such as chronic stress and emotional exhaustion. In this episode, I share with you an effective way of how you reduce the amount of worry and stress you feel as a teacher and how you can train your brain to actually "switch off".

Every Wednesday I'll share a "Quick Quote" to give you a mid week boost to keep you teaching strong until the weekend. Today's quote is all about those little things that seem insignificant at the time and people may even tease you about. In teaching, there are many "small things" that we do that people may wonder why you're doing them (laminating, wall displays, grading with stickers?!) But if these small steps are taking you closer towards your goal or mission, then keep going - even if no…

I share with you some practical tips to help you win your battles, and having to fight them more than once is perfectly OK. You will win if you choose to never give up.

There are so many things we need to be doing and so much we want to be mastering as teachers, which can overwhelm us and make us feel like we're unsuccessful or "failing" as a teacher. However, teaching is a long game and needs to be played as such. You can't do all the things all at once; the only person you should be trying to beat is the teacher you were yesterday.

In this pilot episode, I introduce myself and talk you through my turbulent journey as a teacher.

There are many aspects of teaching and the education system that can easily rub us up the wrong way if we let them, but that shouldn't be reason enough to run for the hills and quit!
