Highly successful in terms of exam sucesses – enabled students to this success through knowing that whatever their ability everyone has an ability and flavoured my teaching with enrichment and catered for their needs whether going on to a carear in medicine engineering- the range was only limited I felt by the students capacity to imbibe what was presented to them by me. Obviously this involved some hard work and quiet acting doing things like contacting NASA and getting poster of the space shuttle 1980’s!
Enrichment Enrichment!!! Many other examples.Not until recently did I gind out from an employee of my publisher did I find out in what high esteem I was held by my former students in North Staffordshire. Also taught at Rugeley schools- where I was amused but did not let on they thought I was Micheal Graff ie they gave me the nickname ‘Tack’ – Tackleberry!
