There are good and bad teachers everywhere

Postbox letter from Nathan

There are good teachers and bad teachers from all over the world. Country of origin makes no difference in your ability to teach.


The practicality of experience and the advantage of training

How delicious is your pie?

When I lost my cherry to teaching, my pie was all desire. Nowadays it's about half desire and half experience.


A good teacher

Who gets to decide what it means to be a 'good' teacher?

I have to admit that it is easy and tempting to think about teachers in shades of 'good'. But perhaps the reality is that there is no such thing as a good teacher. Or, if you are a glass-half-full sort, every teacher is good (in their own little way).


So what makes a good teacher?

Postbox letter from Mark

A good teacher to me is someone who has a good understanding of everything that is is expected of him from his employers.
