Discendo Discimus – by teaching, we learn.

Welcome to John Dabell’s blog site ©

In my site you will find thoughts, ideas, resources, reviews, news and commentary relating to all things ‘education’, the scholarship of teaching and learning and other topical stuff that interests me.

Unlike many edu-bloggers I haven’t put up a paywall – my content is free and open for all.

Who am I?

Fresh-air fiend, Card-Carrying Nosey Parker, Professional Obsessive, Former Teacher, Author, Reviewer, Womble, Threshold Adventurer.

I’m interested in the art, alchemy and craft of teaching, learning and assessment.

I trained as a primary school teacher 25 years ago, starting my career in London and then I taught in a range of schools in the Midlands.

In between teaching jobs, I worked as an Ofsted inspector (no hate mail please!), national in-service provider, project manager, writer and editor. I also worked for 6 years with Nottinghamshire Police.

Every day really is a school day and remember…..

No one can do everything, but everyone can do something.

“In school, you’re taught a lesson and then given a test. In life, you’re given a test that teaches you a lesson.”
