Welcome to John Dabell’s blog site.

I was a primary teacher in London and the Midlands before training as an Ofsted inspector. I have also taught secondary. I then worked as a national inservice provider in maths and science.

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 now work as a project manager, writer and as Editor of @TeacherToolkit, UK Blog Awards Winner 2018.

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.
