I teach English Language and Literature in a secondary school in the north west of England. My school is a comprehensive school and I teach across Key Stages 3 to 5. I’m fortunate to work as part of a great departmental team and currently have the role of Acting Curriculum Leader for English.
I have recently completed a term as Progress Leader for Year 12. Pastoral leadership was a challenge. It gave me an insight into a completely different side of school life.
Teaching is my second career, having first had a foray into the world of fashion retail management via HR and Corporate Training. I love what I now do and am looking to improve my practice every day.
My blog is a personal one: these are my thoughts and not that of my department or my school.
