I have worked in education for many years, and I have often felt powerless when dealing with the system, as if I was a piece in a big puzzle that does not take sufficient account of my feelings or the students. Many times I have felt overwhelmed and frustrated, thinking that nothing would change and that there was nothing I could do.
A transformation is taking place at the school where I work. I have been at the same school for many years, and in that time there have been many dynamics at play in the relationships of the staff members. At times it has felt as though there were separate factions and a sense of isolation, as different teachers responded to the beat of different drums.
All around the world teachers are caring for, inspiring, nurturing and guiding children. These are our stories in our words in joy and appreciation of ALL that we bring!
