Tom and Luca open the first episode open the series with an honest look at the teaching profession from the comforts of the beer garden. Enjoy!

Luca kick starts our journey back to full health with his top three vitamins for the first aid kit…

#1 Remember you are in a room full of comedians – laugh at them and with them.

#2 When you leave at the end of the day -switch off.

#3 Remember that you are human- you won’t always get things right.

Tom’s top tips…

#1.1 Get energy from others – Surround yourself with strength – avoid the mood hoovers and get closer to those who support your ideas and vision.

#1.2 Preperation is key – get your resources ready and think smart by re-using and re-editing the same resources

#1.3 Network- connect with other teachers outside your school- go and find your tribe!
