Scaling the Chalkface is a blog started by two teachers. Two devoted, hard-working and creative teachers (one of English and the other of Maths with a leaning to EBSD) . Two exhausted, lefty, hacked off and increasingly demoralised teachers that want to know there are more people out there who are stuck in the same position. For us life is about learning, and we love teaching what we don’t love is the constant denegration of our professionalism and passion by people who wouldn’t survive five minutes in our classes. If this sounds familiar then we’d love you to join us – as a reader or contributor. It’s time we started to push back.
