About & Index


I want to leave no educational stone unturned. I want to make sense of the classroom. I want to be better at what I do each day and make sure I don’t waste time and energy doing the wrong things.

This blog helps me do that.

The lingering question that always remains beneath the surface of this blog is – how then should we teach?

I have three very loose aims for this project:

  1. To reflect on wellbeing, student behaviour and the daily struggles of being an early career teaching professional and gain insight from others;
  2. To consider what the principles and techniques of expert/effective teaching might be;
  3. To explore wider issues related to teaching: curriculum, assessment and middle leadership.
