E38 Surgery and working around a broken system

Things were getting interesting in Casey’s class. This was not positive for him whatsoever.When he had nothing to threaten the children with anymore he had started to lose power and he had to reevaluate things fast. As things were heating up in the classroom I was given a much-needed 10 days off school.I was goingContinue reading “E38 Surgery and working around a broken system”

E37 Final year of Juniors

It was time to go back to school and we were all a little excited.I still had no love for education because of my experiences but it was going to be different as we were now in our final year of Junior school.

E36 Gordon’s World

We had finally finished the third year and we were about to be off for the summer.Except for Colomendy, the third year of junior school was pretty good.Peter Gribbon was a nice teacher and although football-mad he wanted to get the best from you. He lost his temper a couple of times but it wasContinue reading “E36 Gordon’s World”

E35 Wrapping Up Third Year

The past two blogs focused on what happened at Colomendy and as there was so much to tell it was difficult to mention anything else which was happening in my life at the time.

At the time we thought this was hilarious and everyone at the backContinue reading “E33 Colomendy”

E31 Lenny’s World

The past two weeks it was very hard for me to put the past onto paper.I didn’t expect such a shitty outcome. To be honest I didn’t know what I was expecting.I know what I wanted but what you want and what you get are usually two very different things. It also would be aContinue reading “E31 Lenny’s World”

E29 Finishing Second Year Strong

We had a few months before the end of the school year but this was only going to continue negatively.Granted we were no longer being taught by a sexual predator but who we got in comparison I think I would have rather have Hannibal Lecter as a teacher. We were all working away in classContinue reading “E29 Finishing Second Year Strong”

E28 A trip to Scotland and a surprise exit

We were set to get a new teacher but before that, the class went home for the Easter break half term.
