*Digital Artwork* Leaving Behind Statements
I'm Leaving Behind...
Each statement is powerful because it is true to our personal and professional challenges. This post was shared on social media more than 500 times, evidently resonating with teachers around Australia and the world.
I do not have a set date for the hard copy print run, therefore I will be making the digital version available. These are hi-res artwork images. Each purchase will be supporting the Wine with Teacher dream to create more wellbeing support and resources for teachers in Australia and New Zealand.

1: I'M LEAVING BEHIND UNREALISTIC BURNOUT CULTURE THAT PRESSURES TEACHERS TO KEEP ACCEPTING MORE AND MORE RESPONSIBILITIES RATHER THAN "LET DOWN THE TEAM".
2: I'M LEAVING BEHIND WASTING TIME FEELING UNFAIR TEACHER GUILT FOR TAKING NECESSARY SICK LEAVE, FAMILY LEAVE, OR LONG-SERVICE LEAVE TO PRIORITISE MY HEALTH AND SELF.
3: I'M LEAVING BEHIND COMPETITION OR COMPARISON! YUCK! I DO NOT NEED TO COMPETE WITH OR COMPARE MYSELF WITH ANYONE IN MY SCHOOL OR ON INSTAGRAM. MY BEST IS ALWAYS ENOUGH.
4. I'M LEAVING BEHIND TAKING BEHAVIOUR PERSONALLY, WHETHER IT'S FROM STUDENTS, PARENTS, COLLEAGUES, OR LEADERS. I'LL REFLECT ON WHAT THE BEHAVIOUR IS COMMUNICATING ABOUT THEM.
5. I'M LEAVING BEHIND SELF DOUBT ABOUT MY TEACHING ABILITIES AND STRENGTHS. I AM A HARDWORKING TEACHER WHO IS DOING THEIR BEST AND LEAVING THE REST. MY SCHOOL IS LUCKY TO HAVE ME!
6. I'M LEAVING BEHIND PEOPLE-PLEASING, WHICH LEADS TO ME IGNORING MY BOUNDARIES BY SAYING "YES" WHEN I SHOULD BE SAYING "NO". I'LL BE FIRM WITH MY AVAILABILITY AND WORKLOAD.
7. I'M LEAVING BEHIND ANY TOXIC COLLEAGUES WHO CONSTANTLY COMPLAIN AND CRITICISE. I WILL SPEAK UP IF I AM HAVING PROBLEMS WITH ANY FORM OF WORKPLACE BULLYING.
8. I'M LEAVING BEHIND FEELING UNSUPPORTED BY OTHERS. I WILL BE ASSERTIVE AND ASK FOR HELP WHEN NEEDED BECAUSE I KNOW THAT TEACHERS ARE HUMAN AND THIS WORKLOAD IS A WHOPPER.
