This is my initial blog post and I thought I’d use it to outline what I’m hoping to be discussing in my future musings. I’ve worked as a teacher for over 20 years, in a variety of different school settings and in a variety of different roles, in addition to running my own tuition company for the past five years. I hope that this has given me a breadth of experiences which I can draw upon to offer my advice and thoughts upon a range of educational issues. Additionally, I’m a parent of two children, both now studying GCSE courses, who have had wildly differing experiences of education – again I hope that this will enable me to offer some relevant thoughts which may help support others in similar situations. Finally, I’m a sports fanatic, both as a participant and spectator, and I’m sure you’ll find me commenting upon a range of topics from time to time. That’s enough for now, I don’t want to overstay my welcome!
