Positive affirmations with The Teacher Collection
Over the past five years, Lill Daley has experienced first hand the mental load of being a school teacher - and decided to do something about it.
Lill created a set of affirmation cards out of a personal need for self kindness and positivity, especially during those challenging teaching moments.
It wasn’t long before her colleagues were asking for their own set. And so began her side business, The Teacher Collection.
The Teacher Collection is a set of affirmation cards, featuring positive & uplifting statements, made by a teacher for teachers.
Being from a family of dairy farmers, Lill has seen first hand the positive impact local support can have on a small business. So it’s no surprise that her positive affirmation cards are 100% designed, printed and assembled in Central Victoria.
More recently, Lill has gifted 30 Teacher Support Kits filled with over $800 worth of Australian made items to teachers doing it tough in rural and remote Australia.
Lill shares with us her business story along with her concern for the unseen mental load of being a teacher and why she is passionate about supporting Australian made.
