Here you will find the ruminations of a Graduate Diploma in Education student traversing my way through the first year of pre-service teaching, university assessments and professional experience placements.

The blog includes my  informal thoughts and  formal assessments for the course. The title stems from the wonderful book and movie, “Goodbye Mr. Chips”.  I first watched it when I was very young and its message still resonates.

Please feel free to leave me a comment. Particularly if you are out there teaching already. I take advice readily. Willingly. Gratefully.
