This week I have been reading Martyn Reah's blogs on his experience of launching #teacher5aday and the upcoming week . In Martyn's words:
Five years on from launching #teacher5aday at the SSAT National conference https://martynreah.wordpress.com/2014/12/06/teacher5aday/ instead of presenting at the teachmeet this time #teacher5aday has reached the main stage. A five day focus for leaders and teachers to develop a positive approach to well-being. A start of something which will hopefully become a regular event in school calendars across the country.
The aim of the week is to celebrate the successes of the previous five years. To bring all of the best elements of #teacher5aday from social media and into as many staff rooms across the country as possible. To curate and create a festival of well-being and provide a one stop shop for busy teachers and leaders across the country to find resource which will have an impact on their well-being and that of their colleagues. Working with the amazing team behind National Careers Week #NCW2020 a website is under construction to host all the resources which will allow the well-being conversation to continue after the 6th of December.
The week will be themed around the five aspects of #teacher5aday which was based on New Economic Foundations 5 ways to well-being https://neweconomics.org/2011/07/five-ways-well-new-applications-new-ways-thinking .
