  2. Hi, my name is Tom Gascoigne. I teach GCSE English, AS and A2 English Literature, AS and A2 English Lang-Lit, Basic Skills adult literacy and in my new job that I start in September, I will be introducing Media studies to the curriculum. I am a keen guitarist. I love to get on stage and do my stuff at incredible volume. I am very concerned with teaching as a profession and am seriously considering throwing in the towel unless this new job gives me job satisfaction. I have been in catering as a head chef, in the building trade as a carpenter, now a teacher for the last 8 years. Unless the new job gives me a reason to stay in the 'trade', I can see me looking for something else. Maybe just focus on Adult literacy. Who knows. So, this is a plea to all who read this. Give me a good reason to stay as a teacher. Tom Gascoigne
  3. Don't go there, that is an understatement. Great resource for A-Level Language as well. If I had known this was available when teaching the Lang-Lit course I would have made ful use of it then. Never mind. Anyway, back to the mundane marking of coursework. But I think I shal leave the site on to go back to it when I've had enough. Tom Gascoigne
