Feedback: Principles and Strategies to be Effective and Fast (VIDEO)

From Prearranged to Unannounced Observations
My school has recently changed how it organises performance management observations and I love it. Previously, we had two hour-long observations throughout the year.  We were told well in advance when they would be and there was often some negotiation about...

Emoji Visual Timetable
My timetable has always consisted of those funky, yellow faces, even before I knew they were called 'emojis'!  Now that they are used so often by kids and adults, I thought I'd share the timetable for others to use, if they wish.  I have been using this for...

Perspective #Nurture1617
2016 Last year, I wrote about how we were moving, literally and metaphorically, from an odd to an even year.  Given the world news from 2016, it couldn't be further from the even, plain-sailing year I was hoping for.  Similarly, my personal year hasn't been...

Going A.P.E. (Replacing P.E.E.)
For the last few years, I've been searching for a replacement for P.E.E. to help children answer longer response questions in reading.   I think it's a little silly to have an acronym for children which has two letters the same; it makes it harder to rememb...

I teach. I learn.
Introduction
I teach. I learn.

Two things I am specifically learning to do this year are play the guitar and bake bread.  

I enjoy musicals, movies, music and food. I try to run, especially as it gets lighter.
