|The Arctic Circle|
In September 2011 I arrived at Plymouth University, this was not planned. I planned to go to London, I planned to finish lectures then swan off to the city to get cheap theatre tickets, to spend my weekends on Oxford street - I didn't plan to live in Mutley, I didn't plan to spend 4 hours travelling back home every time I needed a visit, I didn't plan to live in Plymouth, I didn't even know there was a university, but then again I didn't plan to miss out on my first choice place in London because I was 2 UMS marks off a grade to meet my offer. Losing those 2 marks were the best thing that has ever happened to me and I would now like to shake the hand of that AQA moderator who put my ICT coursework down and sent me to the clearing page of UCAS. Thank you. I can't imagine life without Plymouth, it has been a blessing.
Although I used Twitter before I came to University, I have now discovered the huge benefits it holds in the teaching profession and as an educator. After writing my 'Why Twitter?' blog post back in 2012 I have been able to connect with even more teachers and those interested in education - I am still not sure how and why the post became so popular but I feel it sums up how I have written my blog over the last four years. Writing my own personal opinions and stories, adding even more to professional views.

I'm hugely excited to start my next adventure, teaching at a very exciting school in Berkshire. I'm sure I'll be blogging about it soon enough.
Thanks for all those that have followed my blog over the last four years - this is just the start!
