What old teachers do before they lay down and die

Tired. Burnt out, really. Old school. High school. A chalker and talker. Not an interactive whiteboarder. I was like a 1985 VK Holden Commodore, no longer stylish, no longer able to compete with some cute, fun and versatile late-model Toyota Yaris or new, small, sexy Audi. Which is why I hauled my sorry chassis up to the Top End last year. One last ride before being towed to the paddock.

Flying home from work the other day, looking down on the shagpile woodland and vast sleeping waterways of Kakadu, I thought ... emergency teaching can be agonising; it can be humiliating; it can be dead boring, but just sometimes, it can be fun.
