  1. Hi Adam and Rick,

    Great podcast as always! I felt the same way when reading about the teacher in Mexico in that it wasn’t a great idea to do what she did but again it is her right to privacy. On the lunch front… It may not have been a lunch order but I used to have tartare sauce rolls for a while there!

    Hope the term is going well for you both,


    • Hi Claire,
      Tartare sauce rolls! Oh dear, the taste of that is quite easy for me to imagine…and I’m not sure if I could handle it. Wonderful entry. Thanks for sharing. We may have started something here. At least, I hope we have.

      You touched on an important point with the sacked Mexican teacher. As teachers we need to be informed and well aware of that clear balance between professional duties and privacy I think. Perhaps a bit of common sense. Then again, we are our own people and conduct our own lives away from the classroom. Teaching is still a job albeit a personal one.
