So, this semester has drawn to a close and the grade-related aspect of this blog is over. However, I want to do what I can to maintain it. After all, how many blogs are out there by British citizens either teaching or preparing to teach in the United States? Actually, given the number of blogs out there, probably quite a few. Still, this will be my own little addition to the whole. I’ve still got another year and a half of education before I venture out into the wild blue yonder that is the American classroom, so it’ll be interesting to see how much I change in the intervening time.
Over a few entries I’ll try to explain why exactly I want to teach here, rather than Britain and generally relate my attempts to get my head around how exactly the American education system works. Hopefully this will also result in an attempt to compare the two, so that anyone reading this will understand where I’m coming from as much as where I’m heading.
I can’t promise to be a very prolific writer, but I’ll do my best to keep this up. It should be interesting at the very least.
