Friday thought 2
I was shocked the first time I son talked about ‘stealing’ a friend’s idea. ‘but my teacher told me to do it!’ was his response to the look on my face.
Gone are the days when my planning was mine alone and a colleague teaching the same lesson had to plan their own lesson. Pooling knowledge and ideas is positively encouraged, and I for one am VERY grateful for this.

All the best bits in my teaching I have unashamedly pinched from someone else. I just hope to have been able to repay the favour in kind.
I have to agree that I, too, am a borrower. I don’t think I’ll live long enough to pay back all the people I’ve stolen ideas from with good ideas of my own.
