It’s the middle of the school holidays but I am writing this post in response to the article today by the Secret Teacher in the Guardian. I read a great post by Miss B Lilley about spreading the positive message of teaching instead of all the negativity. Here’s the invitation:
I invite you to become the Not So Secret Teacher, send me through your positive experiences of teaching, just focus on one particular thing that you love about teaching, or that makes your day, or that reminds you of how lucky you are to spend your days teaching young people, let’s inspire people to take on (and keep) a career that is more rewarding than so many others.
Before I write about why I love teaching I want to share three things:
- there is a lovely website One Good Thing where teachers all over the world share one good thing from their day. Make sure to check it out here.
- teaching is a challenging profession but through debate, discussion, sharing and support it can be the most wonderful job.
- Some maths teachers back in August started using the hashtag #mathsrockedtoday as a way to highlight positivity in the classroom. I would love to see others joining in.
