I am a teacher and writer living in Bangladesh with my family. We have lived here since 2008 but have been visiting for longer than that. In some ways, my heart has been here all my life only I didn’t know it.
I was born in Wigan, raised in Leicestershire and did my degree in Cambridge where I met my wife. We lived there for 8 years before moving to Cumbria where I was deputy head of the Music department in a local school for 8 years.
Although trained in music, maths and science were never far away and I have always taught these subjects almost as hobbies for nearly 20 years. Now, in Bangladesh, I teach these subjects for real, alongside other subjects such as Computer Studies and I am part of a team running a small school for Bangladeshis in one of the poorest parts of the country.
I have always been writing in some form or another and actually had my first article published years ago when I was just 12. In recent years I have rekindled this passion to write and have had several articles published in the UK.
My blog aims to look at all these areas of my life and that of those around me and to share my thoughts ‘aloud’ as it were to all who are interested. I hope you will be one them.
