As teachers, we often find ourselves in a tizz at that point where the to do list and deadlines are expanding faster than we're able to tackle them! During these times it's common to see teachers running around frazzled, stressed out or sick as they worry about how it's all going to get done. In today's episode I share with you my personal mantra and how I deal with these inevitable stressful moments of being a teacher.
Sometimes when we don't agree with school leaders or the education system, we can start to feel resentment as a teacher. But with one quick mindset shift I will show you how you can lift resentment and continue to strive to be the best teacher you can be.

Gaining respect really can come down to one thing that is so incredibly simple but so often overlooked. Tune in today to learn what this one thing is that will gain respect from others as well as yourself that you can put into action right away.

Who doesn't want to have a great day? In this episode I talk you through some practical steps you can easily do that will ensure you enjoy teaching every day!
Any time we make the decision to grow, challenge ourselves or take our lives to the next level, we will likely feel fear. This is completely normal, but I don't want fear to stop you from progressing as a teacher and being the best you can be. Listen to today's episode to learn how you can cure your fear and take control of your life.
There will undoubtedly be days where sometimes we "just don't feel like it". In this episode I share with you why it is absolutely fundamental to our character that we "do it anyway", as well as some tips and tricks to help you see the truth for what it is and ways you can disempower negative beliefs to help you keep going during the challenging times.
Don't confuse bad days as a sign of weakness (those are the days we're actually fighting the hardest) [Ep34]
"Bad" days are inevitable - we all have them. Sometimes we get frustrated, down or even burst into tears, but this is not a sign of weakness within us. If we keep going even through those challenging times, we are proving that we are fighting our very hardest - that couldn't be more opposite to weakness if we tried! If you're ever having a bad day, don't beat yourself up - listen to this episode, keep your chin up and keep moving forward!
Affirmations are a popular way of helping us change our mindset to be more positive, however many people find they don't work in the long term. There is a very good reason for this that very few people seem to know about. Once I started doing this key step, I found affirmations had a whole new power in my life and I know they will help you too. Listen to this episode to find out what this key missing step is and how you can improve the quality of your life with affirmations.
We've all made mistakes, and providing we are continually growing and trying new things in our teaching, we always will! Sometimes we can be so hard on ourselves as we want to do the best we can for our students, but that doesn't mean we should hold onto all our past mistakes. We have the power to use our mistakes to make us even better - listen to this episode to learn how to harness your inner power to do this!
As we well know, teaching is stressful. It’s stressful because there is always so much to do. The to do list will never be empty. We care deeply so we have an intrinsic desire to do a good job, which also adds stress. We deal with difficult people all day long, adults as well as kids. We are constantly running at a level 10 all day. We rarely stop for a break or to use the toilet all day long. No wonder we go home and collapse!? We are human and can only run on a level 10 for so long before our battery dies and we pass out. In this episode I share some of my top tips for relaxation that you can also use as a busy, stressed out teacher.
As teachers, we are generally known for working our butts off! Yes it's nice to be recognised for the work we do and it definitely hurts when someone else takes credit for our ideas. Regardless, we should not let this prevent us for doing, being and giving our very best. In this episode I share some techniques you can use to help keep you encouraged during those times when you're feeling unappreciated.
What is personal development anyway, and why do we need it? Like many other teachers, I had a rocky start to my journey and had to learn (and am still learning!) many lessons the hard way. What I am certain of, is that personal development - the pursuit of your expanding full potential - is the absolute key to success in teaching and life. It is what keeps us going through the hard times and what enables us to be the best role model we can be to others. In this episode I share with you the importance of our journey of personal development and how your impact on the world can be so much greater than you ever dreamed it could be.
Teaching is a job where we are constantly on the go and oftentimes, mostly just reacting to our circumstances which can leave us feeling stressed out and frustrated. With this simple but effective technique that I share in today's episode, you can learn to think ahead and anticipate your days rather than just react to them leaving you feeling much more in control and empowered.

The Teach On, Teach Strong Podcast is all about providing FREE personal development for teachers!
Firstly let's put this out there:
I am not a guru. I am not a life coach. I AM A TEACHER just like you - sharing lessons I am learning in my teaching journey.
Why I started this podcast: Success can be broken down into 20% skill and 80% mindset. We have plenty of support for professional development (20% skill) but I've found that support for personal development (80% mindset), is lacking for us teachers - UNTIL NOW!
This podcast is a movement I've started to support teachers, and my sole aim is to help you succeed in teaching by developing your personal mindset, so you can be the best teacher you can be!
Tune in every Sunday and Wednesday, and listen to a fellow teacher, who still teaches full time just like you, share with you free personal development tools to enable you to teach on and teach strong every day, and continue to make a difference to the lives of young children.
