(if you only know me through my blog)
I've been tagged by Tom.
  1. I used to be a zoo keeper, at the now defunct Glasgow Zoo. I worked in the carnivore section and co-authored AFAIR a few articles for various journals mostly about behavioural enrichment. I'll leave others to decide if this experience helped or hindered my teaching.
  2. I have played tai chi for over 16 years. I manage a few tai chi websites.
  3. I entered the teaching profession for financial reasons when working as a zoo keeper (my daughter was born), I though I'd give it a go for a couple of years (about 15-16 years ago).
  4. Unlike many edu bloggers I had an instinctive dislike for computers, until my head teacher 'made' me take an apple mac lc475 home over the summer. I bought my first computer in 1995 a Performa 630. This is considerably later than most folks entry to ict. HyperCard was the application that got my attention.
  5. I have had poetry rejected by a poetry magazine, entirely justified I hasten to add, a very short lived ambition.
I am tagging David, Andy,Bob, Robert and Pete.


Thanks for playing along John – hope you had a good Christmas. (santa)

By the way, interestingly my first computer was also an apple, an iBook the old seashell type. I got it for my 21st birthday at university – so I was pretty late into too.

Ha! I guessed someone might have beaten me to it!
