The IB Learner Profile is something that shapes my days. As a PYP teacher, coordinator and learner, I feel that I should always strive to show the attributes of the learner profile.
One of those is BALANCED.
They understand the importance of intellectual, physical and emotional balance
to achieve personal well-being for themselves and others.
The notion of personal well-being is important, and I always stress this in the classroom, but as teachers, we often find it hard to really focus on this ourselves. I know I am the kind of person who just keeps going and going and going, because I love what I do. But I also know I need to stop and relax sometimes.
So today I took a well-deserved time out and went to Grotta Giusti in Monsummano Terme in Tuscany. Spent an hour in the thermal caves and some time in the thermal caves. Just relaxing and now I feel like a new person! I think I am balanced now.
