Thank you for finding my blog!
I am currently Head of English at a large Hampshire secondary school. I have previously been Assistant Head of English, a Pedagogy Leader and Head of Research. In 2019, my first book was published by Bloomsbury Publishing as part of their CPD series. The book is a guide to how to embed research in your teaching and how to train others in the process.
In October 2013 I co-organised and ran the first Teaching and Learning Takeover conference. A conference for teachers from all sectors about the basics of our profession. I organised a further 5 TLT conferences. All were a great success and something I am extremely proud of. Thank you to everyone who took part in these events.
I have been lucky enough to talk at a number of events including teachmeets, the Team English National Conference and PiXL English events. I have spoken about specific areas of pedagogy, leading an English department and Research-informed practice.
I have been blogging about my ideas, thoughts, successful and unsuccessful lessons since 2012 however I paused my blog for a number of years to focus on my own writing and running a large department. I can be found on Twitter on: @MissJLud
