About the Author


My name is Jessica Fear. I am a secondary school teacher – an NQT to be precise. I don’t claim to have many words of wisdom to offer but I do have strong feelings on the education system (and its precursory training system).  What I do lay claim to is an endless desire to pick apart and satirise the nonsense whenever I encounter it, and this blog is the product of said compulsion. Please take it as it is intended: tongue in cheek. As I have said, I don’t pretend to have any special insights, I am just one frustrated (and thus sardonic) practitioner trying to make sense of a field flooded with contradictory and confusing pedagogy.

Come at this with an expectation to share a collective laugh about the quirks and kinks of our profession, and you shall not leave disappointed or offended.
