By way of background to this testimony, I was a primary school teacher for 25 years. I have to admit that latterly I did not really enjoy the job I was paid to do. I do not think at the time I was a particularly good teacher. I never felt energised by doing it and I often felt discouraged by the expectations others had of me. It was effectively a job to keep a roof over my head! I did however really enjoy the opportunity I had to teach RE with my pupils. It was at these lessons I felt most energised and at ease. I was teaching from the heart and not from a text book! I was not being forced to reach targets and deadlines.
