Liked Who Keeps You In Line? by Pernille Ripp (
When we leave the classroom, or the school, or the job and no longer are in touch with those who our words affect the most.

I enjoyed this. When I left the classroom I was pretty determined to keep in mind what it is ‘really like’ when giving advice. Coming back to teaching I find that I had managed that less well than I had hoped for. The biggest difference in being out of the classroom is the blue sky thinking time that can permeate your day. I keep that for commuting nowadays.

  1. This is an interesting reflection John. Going back into the classroom is something that I aspire to do one day, but I fear how much muscle memory I may have lost. My saving grace is that my wife is a teacher and she keeps me grounded … Or at least tries.
