My why? It’s always been the desire to make the world a better place.

When I taught, I did my very best for all of the kids in my class.

As a school leader I worked for the good of my whole school community; the learners, their parents and the whole staff team.

 

Have you had your why rocked?

I have; I was constantly frustrated as a headteacher. By the need to jump through the endless hoops of a game you simply can’t win. In education success is just temporary, rules are changed and goalposts moved regularly. Things that were measured didn’t matter and things that mattered weren’t measured.

 

How do you get your why back?

Today, through my company YouTeachMe, I’m privileged to work with amazing specialist and mainstream schools, improving the things that matter to us all. I’m proud to say that inclusion is at the heart of everything we do.

Together we’ve created something amazing and we’ve proven that it makes the world better for everyone involved. My why is on my sleeve, plain for all to see.

So, if game playing is getting tiring, perhaps now’s the right time to join our Founding Pioneer schools? You can find your why by making the world the place you’d like it to be for your learners, families, colleagues and most importantly, for yourself.
