Almost exactly a year to go before I start teaching at my as-yet-unnamed secondary school with Teach First, and I’ve taken the plunge in creating this reflective blog.
My reasons are twofold – first it’s a reliable place to put any random musings, reflections etc. It allows me to keep all the different types of media I’m generating/finding together in one place – my own reflective journal, sites I love, videos that inspire me etc.
Second, I am taking a massive, massive amount from the wonderful teachers, maths or otherwise, who have taken the plunge before I have, and have their own blogs. I have no pretensions that I can offer radical insights into maths teaching yet, but I hope this blog might be of some use to other people training to teach maths, or considering doing so.
