John-portrait1a

Welcome to John Dabell’s blog site.

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 sadly had to retire from full-time teaching as I developed head and neck cancer. As a result of this I had most of my tongue removed and that makes teaching pretty tough.

I have written for a number of publications and organisations including:

Teacher Toolkit, Busy Things, Cornerstones Education, Picture News, eteach, Teach Primary, Teach Secondary, Teach Early Years, Teach Reading and Writing, SENCo, Technology and Innovation, Capita SIMS, SecEd, Headteacher Update, Third Space Learning, Lessonbox, DoodleMaths, School House Magazine, School Report, Private Schools, Teachers Register, Playtimes, Creative Teaching and Learning, K’NEX Education, Casio, Rising Stars, Collins, Keen Kite, Komodo Maths, EdComs, School Travel Organiser, Teaching Drama, Optimus, Infomentor, Maths – No Problem and many more.

In my site you will find thoughts, ideas, resources, reviews, news and commentary relating to all things ‘education’.

Every day really is a school day.
