Wee Teecher Moi!
If your passion turns into an obsession – which is also your profession – then you no longer WORK
Educator in England ; Love teaching and learning Mathematics with Years 7 through to Further Maths with Year 13, and those students who still keep in touch.
My aim is to inspire a passion for learning and doing Maths.
Since I cannot clone myself I have to make do with being busy almost 24 hours a day! They say that if you want a job doing you should give it to a busy person – they will always be able to fit another in, so I go by this adage. Saying that I would love the time to do all those other things I really enjoy – maths, writing, reading, gardening, spending time with family, the dog, the parrot, at the beach. For someone who has spent a lifetime solving problems you might think I would have sorted this dichotomy out now. Work-life balance exists apparently: it depends on what your priorities/ethics/perspectives on life are.
In the meantime, with summer (!) round the corner, that means revision and more revision, exams and trying to get students the best results possible.
