Christmas is a time for reflection, it is a time for forgiveness, it is a time for celebration! Today I challenge you to smile and let the school smile with you. (Chris Dyson) Read Day 2 – Reading the Warning Signs – Look for, learn and know your warning signs. Once you know your signs, heed them. Allow them to influence your calendar – if your body tells you you need a break, give it one. Switch from work-mode to relax-mode, plug in and charge up; you’ll be much more use with a topped-up battery! (@ThatBoyCanTeach) Read Day 3 – Looking After Yourself –  Look after yourself, so that you can look after others, so they can make a difference for learners.
