Another little Sunday snippit about me! This is a photo (by @graemedyk hi!)of me at my first job after I finished my PhD, at the utterly amazing Wellington College in Berkshire when it was under the headship of the equally amazing Sir Dr Anthony Seldon.
I’ve always been involved in outdoor education alongside my traditional classroom teaching, here I am in rather untraditional uniform as my role as an instructor in the Navy CCF (Combined Cadet Force). I also coached sailing and taught Duke of Edinburgh expedition skills, such as map reading, outdoor cooking etc.
I learnt so much in this job and learnt from some very inspirational teachers. However, I’d never taught before and was thrown in completely at the deep end, so I found it very stressful. It wasn’t long before I moved on to my next post after a chance encounter on a start boat with the coach from the Royal Hospital School. Where was your first job? - 6 hours ago
