I’ve set up this site to share my journey on this path of teaching. I hope to bring a little of my recent learnings from a psychology course that I’ve done , into my daily life as a teacher but also to myself. All teaching starts with self. Whatever comes up on a day to day basis with the students creates a response in me and that is what I try to focus on, ‘how did I feel when that happened?’ That response, that feeling, is where I learn all about me and who I really am. It’s not easy, some days are upsetting, but it’s great to notice my feelings and my responses and to know that they are mine. I try then not to project those feelings onto the students and blame them or give out to them. My feelings belong to me, not the students.
Please share your experiences or let me know if you’ve learnt anything about yourself through me sharing mine. Go gently with yourself….
