Sabbatical: The Plan

Today is Day 1 of a really exciting time in my life - the start of my sabbatical. Generally a sabbatical is the chance to spend time taking on some research or study and some time relaxing and rediscovering your passions before delving back into the manic education field. This is exactly what I intend to do.

My 10 weeks off will be split into the following activities:

  • Rest of recuperation

  • Completing a number of readings - based on wellbeing, leadership and innovative practice and skill development

  • Visiting friends and family in the UK & France

  • Visiting schools in the UK and France

  • Attending the World EdLead 2019 Conference in Singapore

My sabbatical will be a collection of thoughts and reflections from the aspects listed above. I will share this through Facebook, Twitter and of course, this website.
