I've worked with a few men, as we are lucky to have quite a few male teachers in our primary school. I'm female and really enjoy working with men. We're going to trial him having the boys in his room to change for PE and me having the girls, he does the football for me as I have no idea and would much rather do netball (stereotyping, I know but hey, I love netball!!), he comes up with completely different lesson ideas to me when we have our PPA together and I know a lot of his ideas appeal more to the boys, just like some of mine appeal more to the girls. Together, we make a well-balanced team. We joke around a lot and the children really enjoy seeing a good healthy relationship between a male and a female - which is more than many of them see at home! Fingers crossed we get to stay together in September!
