I'm Mindful Of Me – Well being for teachers

Minding myself as a teacher

Finding my own voice — May 26, 2019

Finding my own voice

Do you ever silence your own beliefs for fear of judgement? Do you know what your beliefs are? Do you impose your beliefs on to your students? As a teacher, I feel it is very important that I take time to get to know myself and my values, so that I can empower and encourage my students to do the same for themselves. I cannot give to another what I have not got for myself…..

I like this poem by Marion Woodman:

‘Who am I?

What are my values?

What are my needs?

Am I true to myself?

Do I betray myself?

What are my feelings?

Am I capable of love?

Am I true to my love?’

Lao-Tzu —
