Apparently we all hate Lookman....

I picked up on that the other day with his post despite no one on here saying anything more derogatory than 'he's not quite ready'.

Is it the same guy who insists we love cloggers and hate flair players on here? I honestly don't know single person on here who doesn't like lookman. Christ even I love him and I'm second most miserable after the red who's pretending to support us

Yeah that's Thomas. I don't mind him at all, and although we have had our differences in the past on here, I do like it when he posts. He does look old on that though - he's only like 27 I think.

Just watched it. If Thomas makes it as a history teacher kids are going to have a field day with him. Get him on a topic he likes talking about and they'll do no work in his lessons

And would likely learn a great deal more as well.

Maybe not what they would need to hear though.

My experience of kids who have a teacher who just talks and talks is that they only take out what they want to hear. It'd be great to have someone with his undoubted passion in the classroom - he just needs to channel it in the right way

Yeah I prefer to be having fun whilst teaching, people tend to take more in when it's relaxed

That's always been my philosophy. And today I sat in an after school meeting with the whole staff where Senior Leadership said this is how we should be teaching and I felt like shouting out "I've been doing that for the last 13 years and that's why I get the results and have built the relationships with the kids that I have, but you used to say that was not the best way." But when somebody writes a paper aboit 'new' teaching styles our SLT lap it up. I just try to teach the way I was taught

If he wants to be a history teacher then I really hope he gets that chance and his aspergus doesn't hinder his chances, kids being in contact with someone who has a certain disorder or syndrome (apologies if that's not the right description) and overcoming it, may be a better life lesson than any history lesson.

It shouldn't hinder him in terms of getting a job. My only concern would be how his Asperger manifests itself and how he controls it as schools are stressful places and education is a minefield. I've got several pupils with Aspergers and ea h one is different in their own way, but I love teaching them. I've made a real break through with one and his ability to understand sarcasm and not taken too many things literally.
