I had an epiphany this weekend. I’m currently in the process of applying for jobs. I was bypassing the Leader roles and opting for Teacher posts. I told myself that I didn’t want the responsibility because it’d take me out of the classroom. However, after thinking about it for some days, I realised that I… Continue reading Why am I limiting myself?

I tend to lose my voice quite frequently; it’s been an issue since I started teaching . It used… Continue reading I’ve lost my voice
