Today I completed my gruelling, but amazing, NQT induction at a lovely school. It’s been a fantastic year working with such willing students and such dedicated staff, yet despite being in the privileged position of having a permanent contract in a top performing department in an ‘outstanding’ school, I made the decision to move on and have a fresh start. I’m looking forward to the change, but it was certainly hard to say goodbye this afternoon.
I want to spend some time over the next six weeks considering how to continue improving my teaching into next year, which is partly why I have set up this blog. I’d like to think it can be a place I can put thoughts and ideas, as well as somewhere I can reflect on what I’ve tried out. There are a couple of things that have already caught my eye and I hope to discover more through my new Twitter account @MrWoodTeaches. Have a look and get in touch if there is anything you think I should be looking at!
