Those were the days.
Those were the days. This is a series of collection of stories that come from a data base that I have built up over the years as I have remembered something or got the odd flash back.
I do not have a romantic view of the past, but will say that I feel sure that things have maybe not changed for the better in teaching. The element of fear of those on the chalk face mixed liberally with day to day management that is often inept forms a cocktail that nobody wants to go near.
So after 20 years in the job it is time to try and put a smile on peoples faces with a few a few stories.
Here is a subject mattter list of the posts so far:
Teaching Practice in West Yorkshire
Clive Jarvis an inspirational English teacher
Students and a citizen’s arrest
The Shutting of Slough Icerink
Old School Science demo from a Legend
Staff Band & Scouting for Girls
The World’s Best Filing Method
Very funny reading, Mr Morgan – great to hear about all that went on in “those days” !!
Thanks Big Al, it has been a long time in the teaching game. Times have changed since “those days” and it is nice to be able just to record my memories. It makes it even nicer knowing that people see the funny side too, so thanks for the positive feedback! More where this all came from, so I hope your enjoyment continues!
Try a search of the “OLD SCHOOL” tags and you will find similar stories.
Hi Sam, i dont know if you will see this, i hope you do. It’s been a long time since we have seen and spoke, but i hope things are ok your end? Its been many years since your were my brilliant form teacher, my son has passed through Queensmead which brought back lots of great memories and i do wish those simpler days were still here sometimes.
Well i do hope you are well, Rovers are still crap by the way but someone has to support them!!
I wish you well and hope to catch up in the near future.
Many thanks for some great memories!
