2 Regular Teachers can multitask…hence we’ll see you next week!

Hello all,

We’ve always promoted the fact that we are, after all, two (genuine) regular teachers.

This week:

One regular teacher had to stay back until after 7.30pm at school for a meeting.

The other regular teacher was on the other side of town, guiding a Year 6 debating team through its paces.

Sometimes, even WE can’t get together in the same room to talk about how we manage this juggling act.

Join us next Thursday 20th August, for Episode 40!

Cheers,

2 Regular Teachers
