Not all heroes wear capes.

In this uncertain and unprecedented time, I wanted to spread some words of positivity to all of my positive teachers out there who continue to support each other with so much love. 

Why did you become a teacher?

...to make a difference?

...to help and inspire children?
 

For many of us, this is a period of uncertainty, apprehension and confusion. However, I feel this is also an opportunity to step up and shine when we're needed the most, as teachers. This means remembering your 'why' and delivering for the greater good. 

This could mean different things to different people depending on your circumstances: supporting our fabulous key workers; lending your support to others remotely while self-isolating; working through your Easter holidays; teaching in another school.

We are modelling to our children how to respond in adversity. We are setting the standard to the next generation. 

Fear, doubt and anxiety are contagious, but so is kindness, positivity and compassion. This is worth remembering. We can't always control what happens, but we can control how we respond.

So... why did you become a teacher? Keep on leading the way, inspiring and doing what you do. Come on teachers, what ever twist and turns still lie ahead, we can do this...
