"Could you ask the admins to lock it then? There is no way for someone like me to know that is no longer a valid topic for discussion (given that the last response was yesterday). How about getting it locked if further responses are unwelcome? "

"^truth I was just poking fun since nobody posted up. It is a peculiarity of this place that we don't really follow sports in the forums though. Probably because there are better dedicated sites for that."

Ideal teacher = female teacher? Uh...

Hi all,I didn't expect this to happen, but there is something on which I am desperate to get other male teachers' opinions.Short backstory: After a career in finance I have returned to university to study teaching (I'm 32).

Teachers' Club (for men in Education)

Virtual staff room for visionary teachers of every discipline. This is a good place for educators to discuss their collective role in society--particularly in regards to their duty as role models for young men. What does it mean to be a male role model for young boys in the classroom? How can we serve them best? See More
