Today’s episode is about teaching, including what it’s like to be a teacher, plus the impression we might form of our own teachers. Features:

  • A story of teaching in Japan and trying to melt the ice with difficult colleagues
  • The performance of teaching gone wrong, plus trying to balance pet and family life in the background
  • Burning out and leaving the teaching profession, including the responses of colleagues, and the guilt
  • An almost unbelievable tale of a primary school trip to the sewage treatment plant – coordinated by a teacher who truly must have drawn the short straw
