A guide is essential - if everyone took one then Kerry Mountain Rescue wouldn't be called out half as much as it is.

Thoughts for the year ahead. 1. Have a vision. (Hope and dream!) 2. Be a learner, not a finisher. (Growth>grades) 3. Lean into struggle. (Do hard things.) 4. Feed your passion. (Do fun things!) 5. Own your education. (Invest in yourself.) 6. Own our culture. (Help others grow.)

Good for them to realise that there's value in getting something wrong and you can learn from things not being fully correct too.

There's a study by Silver et al. that shows that teachers feel under pressure to give answers or simplify tasks. Often students put pressure on the teacher to do this also. So it's a good thing to watch out for.

Self-awareness is always beneficial. Can get them reflecting on how they learn and ways to help themselves.

I had one for iphone that gave up the ghost. Went to the apple store and they could only sell me a solid one. I felt like saying 'is this a joke?'

We're heading to 68 then 70 but 75 is ridiculous. Could not cope in the classroom at 75!

Do you use the 'completing the square method' when you are working with calculus and graphs in the UK?

It never easy to work, study and write. Be sure to have someone to moan to and we all got there in the end!

I served Mavis (Thelma Barlow) and Derek (Peter Baldwin) from Coronation Street in a shop in my home town. She bought stuff and he was giving out about her wasting money.
