About this site

Hi!

I’m Caiti Walter, a second in department and geography teacher at a big inner London state school. Despite this site featuring my name, this site really isn’t about me at all; I simply couldn’t resist using the pun. This site is all about sustainable teaching, in a number of respects.

It really is my belief that there is no better job in the world, and that we need to stop telling people otherwise. Make no mistake, it’s not always a picnic in the park. I have experienced all of these things: I’ve wanted to quit, I’ve become incredibly stressed, I’ve become ill due to work, I’ve worked under poor leadership and I’ve felt that the job simply couldn’t be done in the time given. I’ve also moaned about pay. A lot.

Despite all of this, I am about to begin my fifth year of teaching and have never loved it more! My interests within education are teaching & learning, sustainable teaching and spreading positivity about the teaching profession.

If you’d like to get in touch, I’d love to hear from you!
