Avril McDonald - featured in Teach Primary magazine

July 06, 2016

"In an already overcrowded curriculum crammed with assessment, goals and departmental expectations, it still comes down to the abilities of the teacher to raise performance in children while juggling all of these new challenges in mental health, which can seem near impossible".

​Avril McDonald, author of the recently published Feel Brave series of illustrated children’s books, has recently written a piece for the July edition of Teach Primary magazine in which she reflects on how learning to live with anxiety disorders inspired her to bring emotional intelligence into the mainstream with her ‘little stories about big feelings’.
