I’ve been working in primary, secondary and special needs education since 2002, as a TA of various levels, teacher and supply teacher. I’ve also worked for a school leaders’ union and I am active within the NUT.
Because of my work with unions, a short time working for employment tribunal, my engagement with teachers on and offline and my time on supply, I have seen and read about a lot of stuff going on across different schools and authorities that is tantamount to poor, and in some cases, outrageous treatment of school staff. So I really care about school staff wellbeing and union matters and as well as this blog and disproportionately long Facebook statuses, I have written for TES and SecEd on such issues.
