History Teacher / Assistant Head of Sixth Form

My philosophy of education can best be summed up by this excerpt from a letter (quoted by Haim Ginott in Teacher and Child, 1972):
"Dear teachers,
(...) help your students become more human. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths or educated Eichmanns. Reading, writing and arithmetic are important only if they serve to make our children more human."

Fidel Castro for an IB History textbook. He is still trying to write:
1. an IB textbook about medieval history

3. a smattering of science fiction and historical fiction novels
