    Not exacty making life any easier for supply teachers to get work, this morning I received this email from an agency;

    You don’t have to be a ‘teacher’ to teach…

    If you look up ‘teacher’ in a dictionary you may find the following definitions:
    · Impart knowledge to or instruct (someone) as to how to do something
    · Give information about or instruction in a subject or skill
    · Cause (someone) to learn or understand something by example or experience
    So, to teach, you don’t have to be a ‘teacher’, just someone passionate about imparting knowledge, with the ability to give instructions and share examples or experiences.

    Hmmmmmm.
