Equipment set up for online teaching               We evaluated over 1200 surveys to establish a whole school approach to online teaching and learning.
One of the whole school approaches to online teaching and learning was how every teacher used Google Classroom so students have a consistent user experience.

My child using Seesaw during online learning from home

My classroom set up for the return of students on Monday.

Very kindly provided a free space for TeachMeet Kids

Not only that, their museum educators also took the kids around on a pirates tour.

March 1, 2016                 5                 Previously I have blogged about my #edugoals for 2016, one of which is work life satisfaction.
I don’t think I have achieved it.

I sometimes still feel very overwhelmed being a teacher and also a Head Teacher
And then I saw this photo posted on Twitter from a book by @teachertoolkit
One thing I’m learning to accept is that there’s always more to do

It doesn’t matter how much you do as a teacher, there’s always more you can do.
I’m learning not to stress too much when the to do list isn’t completed.
Don’t get me wrong; I do know how to priortise.
But what I have forgotten to do was to have wellbeing in the priority list as well.
What I’m doing now is adding wellbeing activities on the to do list.

Things like read Harry Potter or watch TV

because these little things are just as important as replying to the never-ending emails and modifying programs.
What do you do to achieve work life satisfaction.

Last year I was very lucky to have received a bunch of more flexible furniture from.
To put things in context, I’ve always been very lucky to have a “nice” learning space.
The science lab I’m in was only refurbished in 2010 so my classes and I have always worked with new furniture.
However, when I began my project based learning journey in 2012, I realised that the standard two-seater rectangular tables were no longer working.
Students wanted a space where they can easily transition from whole-class instruction/discussion, to small group work and to individual work.
The space, as it was, was very effective for whole class instruction, but not for small group work where students needed to collaborate and often worked on different projects at different paces.
For the next few years, students spilled out into the hallways, took up nearby classrooms if they weren’t being used and even moved out into the quad in order to work on their projects as a team.
Last year was my first year of full time work after returning from maternity leave.
My baby is now 18 months old.
Being a parent and a full time teacher plus a leader is challenging.

My online PLN often talks of work life balance

However,  .

Said to me on Twitter that he calls it “work/life satisfaction” and not “balance”

I really like the term “satisfaction” than “balance”.
To me, balance is more quantitative.
Something like ‘I must spend equal amounts of time doing work, spending time with my family and doing things I enjoy.’ On the other hand, “satisfaction” seems more qualitative to me.
‘Am I happy?’ “Satisfaction” is also more personal.
Work/life satisfaction is different to each individual and it doesn’t have to be 50/50 all the time.

October 17, 2014                 30               I haven’t posted a lot lately because I have had my first baby in July.
She is definitely the best thing that has ever happened to me.
However she is also the biggest challenge I have faced.
It is more than the challenge of taking care of a tiny little person who is totally dependent on you round the clock.
For me the biggest challenge has been adjusting to how I define myself and how I will find a work life balance.
I have always identified myself through my work, especially my work ethic.
I pride myself in being able to dedicate 500% of myself to my students.
This has meant long hours of work after school and on weekends to create the best learning opportunities and resources for my students.
I pride myself in being able to juggle multiple roles.
In addition to my roles at school, I also worked with UTS, UNSW and Microsoft.
I rarely said no to any opportunities that came before me.
Even before the baby arrived other teachers have said I was going to have a nervous breakdown because I was working so much.
And now the baby has arrived, I have realised I can’t continue doing what I did.
I now need to say no.
So far I have said no to working on the national assessment program for science literacy with UNSW, the summer school program with UTS and presenting in Singapore because I was either physically unable to or doing so will mean I will not be sleeping for months on end.
Not saying no will no longer just impact on me, it will now impact on a little person as well.
This is something I am really struggling with at the moment.
It feels like I’ve lost a part of who I am.
However, the biggest challenge for me will be next year when I return to work full time.
Baby will be 6 months.
I am already thinking of how I’ll balance work commitments from school, my baby’s needs and my own wellbeing.
Some things I have asked myself are: -When should I do school work.
Should I stay at school and finish everything at school.
This would mean picking up baby from daycare late and by the time we get home, it will be time to put her to bed.
If I pick up baby straight after school, I’ll get more time to spend with her but will I then be doing school work till the early hours of the morning and affecting my own health and wellbeing.
-Will I be able to dedicate myself to my students & my faculty as much as I used to.
I’d like to hear from other teachers who are parents and are already on this journey.
What are your advice & tips.
How do you balance your passion for teaching with your family’s needs, and your own needs.
