A Reflection on my Teaching Journey to Date
I have worked as a classroom teacher for over twenty years and it has been a privilege. I have been lucky as I have enjoyed my career and have no regrets in regard to entering the teaching profession. You see I enjoy getting to know the youngsters who enter my class and am intrigued by their personalities, their differences, their uniqueness, their dreams and hopes.
From personal experience in the classroom I became aware of needing to develop a healthy attitude towards self-care. My own journey into mindfulness began in 2004 and I have been feeling the personal benefits ever since. As the mindfulness teacher I hope to empower you to be your best selves.
My Commitment to you, my Colleagues
I am committed to sharing self-care within my own profession as I am aware of the daily stress, strain and fatigue that can be encountered. I believe it is imperative to address the needs of teachers and principals, especially in relation to health & well-being
