Helping teachers manage time and energy
Because Teachers Matter! Happy teachers make better educators for our students
TEACHERS – They work short hours, get great holidays and play games with kids all day, how hard can it be?
If I had a $1 for every time I heard this I would be rich. However, if I hear it one more time, I am likely to slap the person in the face (ok, well, maybe Ill just walk away instead). The point is, unless you are a teacher, you have no idea of the daily demands on your time, energy and emotions….. It can be both exhausting and rewarding.
As an experienced & passionate educator having worked with thousands of people across Australia in all forms of education, I know what it is like to repeat the same conversations with kids each day, manage individual staff needs each week, and deal with challenging parents, not to mention the endless admin as well. From public schools, to private schools, Steiner schools, universities, colleges & working in outdoor education, I have seen it all.
Through my drive to learn more about how people think, feel and act, I have never stopped learning and growing. I wanted to know how I can maintain my own passion while setting energy boundaries so i didnt feel drained. I wanted to be able to lead others with confidence but not at the detriment of myself.
It’s been 7 years since I became a certified coach & NLP (Neuro Linguistics Programming) practitioner where I created Adolescent Toolbox. Here I wrote strengths based programs and worked with clients to set goals, improve communication with others, manage their own perceptions and self talk, as well as inspire an attitude of possibility.
I am still growing and learning and have decided to specialise more specifically for teachers. I mean, lets face it, teacher wellbeing has a direct impact on student learning. If we want our kids to perform better, lets start offering more support to our teachers.
This brings me to the next thing which is;
- Do you really know how amazing and powerful your role is?
- Do you get that you have touched the hearts of many?
- Do you realise that you may just be the most significant person in someones else’s life?
- Do you know that you will be remembered by many for the rest of there lives?
- Do you know that you are valued, appreciated and respected?
- If you don’t know, then I’m here to remind you…. because YOU MATTER!
