A few things while we're a bit scrambly
As teachers, we all want to be able to bring out our ‘A Game’, and the next few weeks are going to be challenging. Here are some things that can help:
- Discover your Strengths, or simply look through the strengths and think about which ones may help you through this time. Choose a new one each day if you like, or stick with a goodie – it’s all good!
- To save some time prepare with colleagues and with tamariki - you’re good at preparation, but you’re especially good at being with tamariki – having them together and holding a safe and nurturing space for them while they’re at school – and that’s what will be the most important thing.
- In fact, project how you want to feel at school. That’s a good place to start! And perhaps share this with the people who support your work.
- Create tiny goals! Even day-to-day, consider the question, what will make today a little better? That’s all that’s needed right now.
