I am a teacher of English at a secondary school in Salisbury, Wiltshire. In my third year of teaching I became an NQT Induction coordinator and I was then placed in charge of coordinating literacy across the school.
I am now approaching my 7th year as a teacher and I feel as though I am still only just scraping the surface of what this job entails. Every year there is a new challenge to overcome and as any teacher will attest, sometimes we choose the challenges, other times they are thrust upon us. Sometimes the challenges seem worthwhile and alas sometimes they feel less so.
I have made this blog to share some of the challenges that are beginning to arise as we strive to improve and to also share some of the ways in which we’ve done this – hopefully some may find it useful, hopefully I will too!
