Mrs Humanities

Because I'm married to the job

About Mrs Humanities

Hi, my name is Mrs Humanities.

Well it’s not really (it’s actually Victoria) but I’m pretty committed to the job, partner goes as far as to say I’m married to it.

FB_IMG_1504437160456.jpgI passed my NQT induction in Summer 2013 and  in April 2014 I became the Head of Humanities at a free school in the South East of England. I moved schools in September 2016 to become Head of Geography and Environmental Studies.

In 2017 I was nominated for a UK blog award in the education category.  In addition I was also nominated for Kent Teacher of the Year 2017 awarded by KM Charity; whilst I was not a named winner my contributions to the education world were Highly Commended.

Already this year I’ve led numerous workshops up and down the country on the theme of marking and feedback. Feel free to get in touch to find out more.

I share my resources freely to benefit learners in other classrooms, to reduce teachers workload and just generally because I want to support the development of education nationally and globally.

My aims for this site are

1// To share interesting and relevant articles, webpages, videos etc. to support the teaching of the Humanities including Geography, History, Citizenship, RE and Values.

2 // To share Teaching and Learning ideas that will benefit learners’ in other classrooms.

3// To provide teaching resources for others to use in the teaching of Humanities and other subject.

4// To discuss educational ideas and issues.

5// To share my wellbeing journey as an educator.

It is very much a work in progress and I am continuously adding to it.

Often you will find I share my opinion of issues, this is solely my opinion and bares no reflection on my employer.

I will try to offer links that provide research, evidence and information for both sides of any debates to enable readers to make up their own mind.  I am happy for readers to share their opinions but please remember that young people may read these pages. Be respectful.

If you have any feedback, suggestions or any questions then please feel free to leave a message.

I look forward to this learning adventure.

Enjoy!
