Being a parent AND a teacher is difficult. I had always assumed that having this profession behind me would enable a smooth transition to parenthood. I was wrong. ‘The book of Parenting’ is written by a completely different author to that of ‘The book of Teaching’.

They are leaning about babies and how to look after a baby and my good friend, Vicky, asked if we could go in to do a question and answer session! We were so impressed with … Continue reading Evelyn’s school day!
