    Aw shucks, you got there before me :(

    “I assumed it would be badly paid, that I would have to spend ages learning pedagogical theory to even become qualified to teach, and that I would be unlikely to be working with like-minded people. I chose a different career path instead."

    oh dear 'teachers not your sort are they?:rolleyes:

    “Eventually, 10 years later, I was given the opportunity to teach. In addition to developing our knowledge-rich curriculum at Future Academies, I teach two classes of year 6 pupils at primary level and one class of year 7 students and one class of GCSE students at secondary level. I’ve chosen not to become a qualified teacher because I honestly believe that high energy and a great love of your subject are the most important qualifications,” she wrote.

    Oh. that;s ok then.:rolleyes:
