    I sighed as I sat down at my kitchen table. To my left, a fresh cup of coffee, to my right stacks of textbooks, in front of me a fully charged Microsoft Surface Pro. Right, let’s do this! My fingers hovered uncertainly over my keyboard as I perused my notes...

    Khalid El Mahroug

    Teaching is just like life: always full of surprises. Too often, however, these surprises give rise to frustration, disappointment and demotivation. But why, you might ask? It’s simple: education is one of society’s essential foundations and we all know that we must invest in it through well thought out and...

    Laurent Berck

    Luxembourg’s shortage of qualified primary school teachers has often made the front pages in recent years, even though the OECD has once again reported that Luxembourg’s teachers are the best paid.

    I was impressed by the way my teachers, both in Primary and Secondary schools, had taught me. The way they taught was very motivating and contagious. That inspired me to be like them when I grew up.

    Get ready. This is going to be a feel-good story about why you should go out into the world and teach. Also, hopefully it will inspire you to become an active unionist. And if you have left teaching, I will try to convince you to come back to the magical...

    Anthony Dowling

    If you are passing through Glasnevin Cemetery on the outskirts of Dublin City Centre, you may come across the noticeable yet simple gravestone of James Larkin.
