Literary Inspirations - George Orwell on Children

Never have ideas about children, and never have ideas for them
-George Orwell

Sage words to keep in mind, as either a parent or a teacher. I start my practicum next week at the school I hope to be teaching at next year and at the moment my mind is just overwhelmed with different ideas and theories and information. The moment I step in front of a class, none of that is going to matter. It will be me, it will be them and we'll work together to learn regardless of Piaget's theories. I'm thrilled and really nervous at the same time, but this is the culmination of why I went back to study in the first place.


  1. Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! :)

  2. Ooh that is seriously exciting honey!!! I'm sure you'll find it a breeze after the first day.... the first day is always a tad scary :) hehe

    Loving the quote too! Have you read 1984 by George Orwell? I was actually talking to a friend about it today, he said he had and it was a good book... so I'm thinking I may venture on to it...

  3. good luck good luck good luck!

    You will do brilliantly.
