This is the website of Sam Burt, secondary teacher of English and Economics in an East London school, blogger, and writer.
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.
Here you will find my general articles (with a particular focus on education, politics, the arts, literature and publishing), some essays, poetry and short stories.
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.
Thanks for visiting.
