jobs for ex-teachers

My hopes and dreams for 2016

January 4, 2016 admin 0

It’s the night before I return to my teaching job and I am sat here at my desk staring at my empty planner knowing that by the end of the week it will be full of deadlines, lesson plans, reference requests and meetings. I don’t particularly mind as I have just got a new job and I know it’s going to be demanding and exhausting but hopefully rewarding too. However it has made me realise that this year i need to work […]

Our Christmas sparkle was stolen by Broomheath plantation :(

5 weeks ago my family and I took our annual trip to the Broomheath plantation to pick our Christmas tree.

I have two boys, one is five and superhero mad, the other is two and loves what ever his big brother tells him to love, so at the moment he’s also superhero mad. So obviously when I asked my 5 year old how he wanted his room decorating he suggested having a superhero room. Not one for over decorated rooms I got him to compromise on one blue wall, one red wall and super hero […]
