What can I say…I have held a passion for teaching and children since 1972…Today with such unrelenting demands that sabotage teaching and the requirements teachers must follow…Knowing how it impacts my children…I do feel sad and frustrated…. I look at my precious children, with their willingness to do their best and do all that is asked…My love and passion, still holding dear not to disappoint…I do try to inspire, and make all this fun and rewarding…
My little first graders must sit all day…recess at the end of the day…Taking tests where they must have computer skills, and I will be evaluated how effective my teaching is….I can only hope that one day…We will once again do the right thing…

It seems strange to me how governments, local education authorities, councils, or whoever or so fixated by statistics they feel impelled to collect. Schools need to account for some, for sure, but how useful is an excess. I’m probably not alone in thinking schooling is a matter for teachers, governors, parents and of course, children. And that’s it, they alone. Local school records can be shown to school inspectors and any one else who has a need. Would teachers then have more time to inspire their children to want to learn. I would hope so.
Love,joy and peace, as always. Me.
Andrew…Thank you so much for your comment…as you can see…I have been quite busy with school” to let you know how much I appreciate your comments…All our demands do keep teachers locked in to a fixed schedule…I do get to provide snippets of inspiration with my drama and style…Not much time for art and creativity…Hopefully, later in the year…So much testing….Bless you….Janis
