Dates:  Thurs 11th October, 18th October & 25th October 2018 (7pm-9pm)

Facilitator:  Ann-Marie Ireland

 Within this ‘Teacher Breathing Space’ course you are offered that all important space to: 

·        address stress in the life of the teacher/school leader and offer practices to alleviate this stress and improve your well-being

·        address the term ‘self-care’ and look at your life in terms of renewal both personally and professionally through mindfulness and well-being practices as well as reflecting upon patterns of thinking and habitual behaviour

·        pause, notice and breathe through engaging in simple, short practices in mindful awareness and learning how to bring these practices into your daily life in simple, practical ways

·        engage in short CBT exercises that can help to identify your stressors and ‘declutter’ your mind

·        learn how to appreciate the present moment in order to cultivate a more enriched and fuller life each day

This course is focused upon the teacher’s needs in terms of your emotional and mental well-being, with a passionate belief that in any school community, the very essence and foundation of all teaching and learning begins with the educator and so this course strives to bring care and attention to the teacher/school leader in order to create an improved and enjoyable work/life balance for you.  Whilst the life of the teacher will be looked at in terms of their well-being, this course will not be covering classroom lesson plans or practices.
