Creative Teacher Support or creativeafl.com is basically the web name for Gordon Baillie, an Advanced Skills Teacher specialising in English and learning and teaching, specifically Assessment for Learning.
I am in my fourteenth year of teaching, having taught in a variety of contexts from inner city to rural and now a comprehensive Academy. I have worked extensively in the surrounding area and have had the pleasure of contributing to one National Conference but would love to do more. I enjoy training and working with staff in all subject areas and contribute to training in the Chester and Wirral areas and to the PGCE (for English) at Keele University and, again, would love to do more.
I believe passionately in comprehensive education and the power of pedagogy as a science that is both tangible and intangible at the same time. I believe that teaching and learning should be creative, engaging and enjoyable for everyone involved and hope to hear more from many others as to how we can achieve this for all of our students.
