    I really enjoyed Marie Delaney’s session this morning. I think too often we get caught up in all the various tasks involved in being a teacher and we forget to take care of ourselves. I’ve practiced mindfulness and yoga for a couple years now. It’s really helped me not only relieve but also prevent feeling stressed out. If you’re interested in doing some reading about mindfulness, this book does a great job of explaining what it’s all about and how to incorporate it into your daily life:

    I’m very keen to read your work as an inspiration for members of staff in a challenging PRU . However I was disheartened to read a Twitter comment made by someone yesterday that said “loved Marie Delaney talk today , teachers are the biggest attention seekers, and control freaks of all ” doesn’t instil me with faith …..? Am I missing something?
