We all know teaching can be stressful, especially if you are a day to day casual teacher. How can we be expected to empower and inspire young people when we ourselves are struggling with time, energy and expectations?
More and more research is showing that Positive Psychology can not only build student wellbeing but also teacher wellbeing.
