|Playing "Last Post" at my new primary school|
Over the moon to have been interviewed by Rod Suskin!
Since this interview, I have taken the totally crazy step to see what is happening in the primary school sector of education. If anyone had said to me "Alex, you're going to be teaching Year 5" I never would have believed it. And if they had said "And you're going to love it" I would have thought the speaker insane. And for my class to win the "Class of the Week" an unprecedented TWO TIMES IN A ROW?? Just call me a happy camper. Pics to follow shortly (expect my goofy, happy face).
But I figured if I'm going to be campaigning for change, then I had better check out where kids are coming from when they start secondary school. So far, it's been a real eye opener and I'll be blogging more about this in the near future.
Let's just leave it at me tripping over shorter pupils for the moment and wondering how any kid can leave school understanding the Golden Rights but not growing up into the kind of adult who can be mature enough to follow them. Oh and just check out that CIA scarf!!!
PS I still say being a teacher is the most fulfilling job on the planet and I'm so lucky I have found the path to being able to enjoy both of my passions at the same time.
So without further delay, here's yours truly on Rod TV!! Please do share with your teacher friends.

About the New Book
There are two wolves fighting inside of me, the old story goes, one wolf is good and the other is evil. “But Grandfather,” asked the child, “Which one wins?” The Grandfather answered, “The wolf I feed.”
We might like to think that being good is a natural instinct. In fact, doing the right thing takes a conscious decision. Every day, we are met with temptation to get ahead at the expense of someone else, to get away with something we know is wrong or to cut corners if we think no one is watching.
Following on from her powerful book on astrology and Education, “Growing Pains”, Alex Trenoweth explores the benefits of using “the bad guy” of the solar system: Saturn. Often avoided and seldom understood, if we understand our own Saturn then we can help others to understand theirs. Using case studies of highly successful people contrasted with convicted serial killers, Trenoweth deftly demonstrates the dire consequences of feeding the wrong wolf.
