Downtown opened an Ask a Teacher thread a few years ago, and now I've officially completed a few years in the profession I thought I'd open another to see if anyone had any burning questions. I'm a secondary school teacher specializing in mathematics. I will also be teaching science starting in a couple months and have dabbled in a few other subjects such as citizenship, IT and history. Most of my teaching is with students preparing to take their GCSEs (13-16), though I also teach A-level (16-18) and KS3 (11-13) and have done some work with KS2 (9-11) pupils on transition and taster days. The academy I work at is very small (roughly 500 pupils). Age range is 3-18 with a few mature students; not a typical British school by any means. I have also taught in some slightly more usual school set-ups of various sizes. So... any questions?
