You're the disease, I'm the cure.Sylvester Stallone, Cobra
Time to move on again. Sometime around the end of July I say "Goodbye" to Linwood College and take up a role at the Christchurch Mind Lab as an Edtech Educator. A different type of teaching and one I hope will give me more opportunities to learn better teaching techniques while doing the stuff I love. It is always a shame to leave students behind after building up some great relationships (and getting everyone excited about those new courses) but if I've learned anything from my history of being bought and sold is that when a organisation culture changes you have to make a call.
Reflecting on schools as a workplace has been an interesting exercise over the last few weeks. The results haven't changed much since my last teaching gig and my opinion of schools is much the same.
Change is usually good and when in doubt their is always punk music and home distilled whisky. Good times.
