Back in July Did Teach were contacted by Jennifer Savin, Features Writer for Cosmopolitan Magazine. Jennifer was working on a report about teaching and why so many people are leaving the profession, and was looking for teachers who would be happy to chat to her about their reasons for quitting teaching?
A record number of you responded to this invitation, many of you I spoke to personally about the difficulties you were facing with your teaching career, all your responses were passed on to the editorial team at Cosmopolitan. Thank you so much to all who replied and were willing to share their stories.
Please find the finished article in November issue of Cosmopolitan:

There is also a lovely write up from the Cosmopolitan staff on ‘The teachers who changed our lives, educators who made a difference’.
I hope you enjoy reading this article and reflect on the amazing skills we teachers have but how things really do need to change!
