About Me

I first began blogging (here)during my undergraduate year abroad and enjoyed it so much I picked it up again when training to teach (here). I continued as an NQT and then during my Masters. Since then I felt that I’ve ‘outgrown’ the Bex-Trex name and decided it was time to start afresh here. Blogging has always been a great way for me to reflect and that was especially useful during my training. Now, as well as reflecting, I’d like to share more of what happens in my classroom, the things I am finding out and my thoughts on education more generally. I hope the blog can continue to be interesting and useful to a range of people.
