Yes, I know, there's a lot to moan about in teaching at the moment. We've had so many changes, so many demands and so much pressure put on us over the past few years (actually forever) and the funding cuts and the threat of mass accademisation still hasn't gone away. The SEND reforms are in a mess and the media are against us...as everything wrong in society is the teacher's fault, naturally, and far too many good teachers are leaving.
However, with a new year starting I want to be more positive. I'm fed up of the doom and gloom dragging me down and making me feel more stressed than I probably need to be. And reading the tweets about the College of Teaching this week, some positive and some very negative, it made me sigh. I'd love it to be something that we could all feel positive about because I do believe that being positive makes us better teachers and a better profession.
