In this Episode of The PE Umbrella Podcast, I reflect on the importance of 'Enthusiasm' as a key teacher trait and argue that true enthusiasm is only achieved if you Love what you are doing. I use the example of the famous quote" 'A fish will forever think it's stupid if it's judged by its ability to climb a tree' Why do so many people focus on improving their weaknesses rather than perfecting the things that are already their strengths? If we focus on our strengths, we are likely to be happy and more enthusiastic in what is is we are doing. This has certainly been the case for myself as I have transitioned from full time primary classroom teacher delivering the whole national curriculum into a primary PE adviser and specialist, my true passion. I explain why I no longer have the 'living for the weekend' mentality and urge you to be a fish that swims, not one that tries to climb trees. I would love to hear your own views on my reflections, so what are you waiting for? Come and join me 'Under the Umbrella'
