Gratitude Cards x A Dose of Reminders
Let the quote inspire you and the message connect you.
As teachers, showing gratitude toward one another is an incredibly powerful tool for our wellbeing. We’re wired to connect. Whether it’s over a cuppa, hug or handwritten note – building relationships is a crucial part of the human experience.
Research reveals that showing appreciation for others fosters authentic connection, while decreasing feelings of loneliness and isolation. It shows that teachers have improved wellbeing outcomes when they feel a sense of value in their community, get actively involved within their school and positively interact with students and staff. What's more, it has a ripple effect on both the giver and receiver of gratitude.
That’s why I created these A Dose of Gratitude Cards, a collaboration with Zu from A Dose of Reminders. They're a tool you can use to spread gratitude, love and light to those around you. In doing so, you’ll also ignite internal feelings of joy and empathy, and make deeper connections with those you work alongside.
Together, let’s spread the power of gratitude towards our colleagues.

How To Use:
Find a time of the day that suits you. Most people prefer the end of the day, when the day and actions of others are fresh in your mind. Take some time to craft your note then leave it on their desk, slide it into their pigeon hole or pop it in the post.
Once you’re done, pour yourself a cuppa and embrace the feelings of joy, empathy and gratitude that come over you.

You're probably wondering...
Why am I the best person to lead this program?
I’m currently a teacher and have been teaching for the past eight years. I get it. I know what it’s like and I’m going through the education system right now alongside you. I understand the contemporary challenges of being a teacher. I also work in a regional, high disadvantage setting, so I understand the additional unique set of challenges that come with that context.
I’m constantly reading and accessing the research, reviewing current studies and considering the implications for teachers. Not only is this a job for me, but it’s an area I’m passionate about. As well as having undertaken significant professional learning within this area, I’ve also completed a Masters of Evidence Based Teaching (University of Melbourne), with the focus of that being in the wellbeing space.
Most importantly though, I care. I care about our teachers, the challenges they face. We have kids within our education system that really need us. We are their person, and when we give so much to them, day in and day out, the toll on us can be immense. We can wait the 10+ years it could take to develop policies and a clear, coordinated approach to support teacher wellbeing, or we can take ownership of our own wellness now. It fills my cup being able to support my colleagues.
