This blog has charted an interesting period in my teaching life. When I first started blogging here, it was as a classroom teacher looking for an echo chamber to reflect and develop my practice. Then I became a Head of Year and finally an Acting-Assistant Head and immediately there was a substantial drop-off in my already infrequent posting. As my responsibilities in school have increased, I seem to have spent less time reflecting actively here (though that’s not to say I haven’t been reflecting).
The key point is that although the demands on my time may have increased, I still need to make the time to reflect and think. Otherwise I run the risk of never learning from my mistakes. To summarise then, consider this an intention to start trying to blog again. It’s easily said, but we’ll see if I can manage it!
