Teacher Affirmations Discs
Please be patient on the post.
This set of 36 affirmations has been created to support the teaching community. It's a physical reminder that you are seen, heard, and valued. Hopefully, there is a supportive mentor, colleague, or leader in your school who has spoken these truths and reassured you when you needed it.
Whether you have bought this for yourself, or for a friend - there are instructions in the package with suggestions on where to keep it and how to use it.
