As I near the end of my year working as a learning support assistant and approach the start of my Schools Direct teacher training, I am beginning to reflect in earnest on the kind of history teacher I would like to become. I have observed how history is taught at my school and read many history teachers’ blogs – the most influential for me being Michael Fordham, Toby French, Ben Newmarkand Robert Peal. I’ve visited several schools and seen different styles of teaching. I also remember how I was taught at school and what it was that made me love history so much as a subject. All this will go into the mix of future teacher me.
