Mrs Humanities shares… managing your wellbeing and workload

Leave a comment

Over the course of the current academic year I’ve delivered several virtual presentations for trainees and early career teachers. As an active ambassador for teacher wellbeing and mental health, I thought it might be beneficial to make a recording of my presentation for others to access and share.

The presentation which is provided below explores a variety of ideas, strategies and key messages to support early career teachers to manage their workload and prioritise their wellbeing. After each section, there is an opportunity for the presentation to be paused to allow for reflection and/or discussion.

Much of the content is covered in my book ‘Making it as a Teacher, How to Survive and Thrive in the First Five Years’ which offers a variety of tips, anecdotes, real-life examples and practical advice to help new teachers survive and thrive through the first 5 years of teaching, along with snippets of insight from numerous practicing teachers and teacher educators such as Adrian Bethune, Gill Rowland and Andrew Cowley to name a few.

When I’ve delivered my presentation, I’m often asked for access to the resource bank. To access please click the download button below:

I am providing these resources freely to support others, but if you would like to thank me for them, please consider making a donation to Education Support or something smaller to my Ko-Fi account which helps to keep my site running.

Sharing

What advice would you give to early career teachers? I’d love to collate the advice of others, so please feel free to leave a comment with your top tips.

Hope you find the resources useful.
