Thoughts:

‘Why @TeacherToolkit?’ is a question I am often asked.

I always feel very flattered when educators want to meet me. I always try to spin events so that I can show off the work we do at our school and our wonderful students; when the inevitable happens and people want to meet @TeacherToolkit and not Ross McGill the deputy headteacher, I chuckle, then always arrange meetings after school hours on a Friday evening. This is what works for me, my workload and my lifestyle and reduces any impact on my work.
