Hi. I'm a secondary teacher of English and Economics in an East London school, blogger, and writer. (I blog at www.samburt.info)
Most of my time is spent finding ways to get kids to do what they’re told; I spend the rest doing the same with words.
I write general articles (with a particular focus on education, politics, the arts, literature and publishing), poetry and short stories. I am currently researching a novel set in Kabul during the 1960s.
I entered teaching via Teach First after studying PPE at the University of Oxford. I have been teaching for four years and will shortly graduate with a masters degree in Transformational Leadership.
