What does an English Teacher do?


Hello and welcome to the Just the Job Podcast – a podcast about the jobs other people do.

This episode I spoke to Jon Sellick, an English teacher in a secondary school in Merseyside. We spoke about the pressures of impressing teenagers, dealing with the workload, finding that magic hook in a lesson, being a constant in students’ lives, English versus Maths, and stealing the show (quite literally) in school drama productions. We also tried, and largely failed, to defend our cushy amount of holidays.

You can listen to all other episodes by visiting justthejobpodcast.com.  There, you’ll also find the  bank of questions I ask my guests, so you can play along at home, as well as links to my various maths & non maths projects. If you want to get in contact, then on Twitter I am @mrbartonmaths. Finally, all the lovely music throughout the episode is written and performed by Monk Turner.

I hope you enjoy the show!
Craig Barton
