After presenting at the SSAT Lead Practitioners Conference (2017) it seems very sensible to keep the conversations going with some amazing teachers on a regular basis. To turn the learning from the day into developments back at school, whether it be developing a more healthy approach to life / work balance or supporting colleagues to improve their practice and keeping the main thing the main thing.

As Stephen Tierney @leadinglearner suggest “let’s do less better”.

Every Sunday from 11.00 am #teacher5aday slow chat for Lead Practitioners present and future (#LeadPchat) will discuss topical educational issues . A couple of questions will be shared in advance and and then gently discussed over the course of Sunday with people dropping in and out of the conversations as they feel fit. In the way that #teacher5aday #slowchat has developed http://wp.me/p4VbxY-mg I will be looking for volunteers to host a day in the future..
This week’s questions are from @JoThornton76

If you would like to get involved with the chat from 11.00 am a question will be posted every hour or so. After you have introduced yourself and explained where you come from feel free to tweet your answers and keep the conversation going.

Don’t forget to include the hashtags so that we can Storify the chat at the end of the day (#teacher5aday #LeadPChat).

I’m hoping that all teachers will find something that will interest them each week. I’m sure after listening to the high quality conversations at the conference including the lead practitioners school based projects there will be lots of topics to discuss in the future.

In my opinion the strength of our profession is our ability to work together. A collective voice can make a real difference. With well-being at the heart of the conversation can you #volunteer, #connect, #learn and #notice the difference we can make together? 

Hope to see you take part in the chat at some point on Sunday.

Healthy regards,
