#Teacher5adaySlowChat – Developing Healthy Habits

What is #Teacher5adaySlowChat?

A week of wellbeing chat – Developing Healthy Habits

Running from Monday the 4.4.16 to Friday the 8.4.16 what better way to finish your Easter break than thinking about your wellbeing and how you can recharge your batteries in preparation for the next term and beyond?

#Teacher5adaySlowChat will involve a variety of teachers sharing their views and ideas about the importance of wellbeing to promote the debate and continue the conversations started at Christmas during our first slow chat.


Who is involved?

The five educators below will share their ideas in a blog to be discussed each day. They will then start the conversations by posting a few questions during the course of the day based on the blog using the #teacher5adaySlowChat hashtags. Some contributions from Christmas are available below and a worth a read as well.
