Fighting the ‘Wave of Worry’ Amidst Austerity...


In this profession, especially when the evenings close in and early mornings are dark, the mind wanders. 

It wanders to a place whereby all of the tiny battles of the day become huge wars. It wanders to a place where the day becomes difficult to start and even more so to conclude. It wanders to a place whereby one often questions the capability to make a difference.

We are experiencing a time whereby our workplace, our communities, and our home life are being directly impacted...

More than ever, we have a responsibility to remind ourselves and each other that:

* We make a difference.
* Our personal and family lives come first.
* There is help out there.
* We are surrounded by colleagues that have extensive experience and have weathered many storms; these individuals can prove to be great resources.
* As seasoned teachers, we may sometimes need to look to our younger faces in the staff room for that boost of energy, enthusiasm, and motivation.
* Our strength comes in our collective efforts as a staff and an association.
* We are known to be resilient. But we will not be taken advantage of... 
* Now is the time, more so than any other time, that we must keep the passion burning.




Trust that your passion and the strength of the NLTA, will guide us through the storm.

Resilience, Passion, and Trust...
