Primary teacher Jacqueline’s dog suffers when the work builds Ease The Load has recruited Gladeana McMahon, one of the country’s top life coaches, to offer one of our viewers some much needed advice on time management.
Pictor Primary is a Special Needs primary school in Greater Manchester where Jacqueline Wheble has recently been made the Assistant Headteacher. Four days a week Jackie teaches the very youngest children on the autistic spectrum, leaving one day a week for her management responsibilities. She is also the Behaviour Support Leader and the Team Teach Tutor for the school. At the moment she doesn’t feel that she is performing any of these roles particularly well. She worries that she lets her classroom slide when she’s absorbed by management issues.
Spending most of her time at home planning and preparing for lessons, she hasn’t found the time to decorate her house in three years. But even worse is the fact that she hardly ever gets time to walk Bea, her Airedale dog. Gladeana thinks it’s time to change that.
