Redborne Community College last century. The first ‘Brush Up Your Maths’ session of the academic year. At the beginning of the lesson, in comes a former student to speak to the class.
“I passed my GCSE Maths, then obtained a Physics Degree + I’ve just completed a PGCE. I now teach locally.”
Both of us so proud – I remember she cursed me as I ‘pulled’ her up with “what if” open questions.
Such joy, such exhilaration, to help so many overcome their fears with gentle teaching.
