In this episode of The Learning Network's Community & Family Studies Podcast, I am joined by the inspirational Angela Lockwood to chat about the importance of being aware of all the different needs of the students in your classroom & prioritising the wellbeing of both you & your students.

Angela is an occupational therapist & author who, for the last 20 years, has been working in classrooms to provide school based Occupational Therapy services focusing on the inclusion of children with diverse needs. 

We chat about leading with your heart and not your head as one of the most important ways to make a true difference to the lives of those smiling faces looking up at you & dive in to some of the practical ways you can do this in your classroom.

So join us for an episode that will touch your heart, make you think about important things in your class &, if you're anything like me, may even give you goosebumps!
