Glorious weather for outdoor classrooms, Royal Weddings and I got to attend Northern Rocks the final!

Not heard of Northern Rocks? It’s a great group reclaiming pedagogy, standing up for what children really need in the education system and it’s quite political! I did wonder why I was there with my happiness to spread! Listening to others before my session I realised the one thing we want is just to be appreciated in our roles within education but I felt slightly sad and excited because what are we waiting for?

In my 23 years as a primary teacher I can count on one hand the times I’ve been ‘appreciated’. Two years ago I decided to flip that thinking and start appreciating myself and my colleagues which is exactly what the Spread The Happiness community does. Choosing this simple change impacts immediately on your world and ripples wider to infect others.

We know what we are doing in our roles, we know how children learn best, we are always open to new ideas to enhance the work we do and we pretty much, on a daily basis give 110%, so let’s start celebrating.

I’ve written a brand-new twilight or evening celebration event called ‘The Happiness Injection’ it’s self-help comedy for education to lift and inspire your whole staffroom.

You could host an event at your school (get free staff places) and invite clusters or feeder schools to join you

Happiness – your route map to inner joy.

This funny, practical book by Andy Cope, the Dr of Happiness and Shonette, will show you how to transform your thinking, change gear and find a fresh new perspective that will leave you better focused on the things that matter, healthier and a great deal happier.
