about me

After 20 years of working as a teacher I have decided to put pen to paper and record the things which interest me and hopefully others. Born in Chester and brought up in Sunderland I now call Petersfield home. After starting my career in the East Midlands promotion moved me north to Yorkshire. Family commitments dragged me kicking and screaming south to Hampshire where my four children keep me busy with some spare time available for enjoying sport.

The job has changed dramatically since 1994. My first classroom had a state of the art chalk board which could display 3 different boards. E mail was not something I was aware of and my register was kept very neat and tidy in my blue register book (I’m sure absence patterns were easier to spot then!!). What remains the same is the desire to see all of the students I work with achieve their best. I hope you enjoy my thoughts and feelings about what remains the best job in the world (in my opinion anyway).
