I’m Back!

I figured it was about time that I started blogging again and a lot has happened since i was last here, so here’s an update…

I’m now a primary school teacher. I finished my training last year and found myself a job in a wonderful school not too far from where i live. I have a year 3 class and i’m absolutely loving it! Every day is different, challenging and interesting. I was also made the ICT coordinator, which wasn’t what i had planned coming from an art background, but i’m so glad i said yes. I absolutely love computer science as a subject and love all the different technology and resources that can be used. My biggest challenge with the role is the current state of my school ICT equiptment, in that it’s extremely outdated and a lot of the times unusable, it’s very fustrating but i hope to help move the school on in such a way that we can make it a leading subject. I run an afterschool coding club too which aside from the prementioned challenges i’m really enjoying. The children in the club enjoyed doing stop frame animation this week and i’m looking forward to introducing more makerspace type activities.

So what about the illustration work? Well, I’ll admit that has taken a back burner a little. You can still get my book ‘This Bear, That Bear’, and I really would love to do another one, although I’d also like to turn my hand to chapter book based fiction. Who knows what the future holds!!
