I turned fifty this year. I thought of having a big party to mark the anniversary but decided instead to make this a year of reflection and change (with a big party at some point, obviously). So what am I doing?
I’m going back to university and am going to train to be a teacher (Secondary science – Biology).
Education, and working with children and young people, have been central to my career to date, but I’ve never been brave enough, to actually qualify as a proper teacher.
Some of my friends and colleagues will think this is an insane idea, however, I think most of them will probably think that this is something I should have done twenty years ago and it’s about time I came to my senses.
