As autumn turns to winter, change is taking place all around us. The leaves that are changing colour and fluttering by, the warmth in the air that is giving way to the crisp and cold mornings and the imminent expectation of the festive season. Life for us is also steadily changing towards a more recognisable sense of what it used to be. The children are all at school again and enjoying life. There have been breaks away, social events with friends and family and obviously plenty of football matches. Yet there has been one thing that has not returned to normal and that is my return to work.
I am a different person to that one that frantically left her class on 28th January 2016. I haven’t considered in any depth how I am different, I just know I’m different. I have seen, heard and felt emotions which I didn’t even know existed. I’ll stop there.
So, after months of discussions and deliberation, as a family we have agreed that I will take a break from teaching in the regular sense. Instead, I am going to use my skills and expertise in a more innovative and creative way and start my own business. It seems like a great opportunity to refocus my energy and enthusiasm. By combining my passion for learning, growth and exploration with a more flexible work regime, I am hoping that we can continue to look to the future with excitement, positivity and strength whilst maintaining the stability we have achieved.
So, it is with great delight that I would like to introduce to you my new business, Go Fish Education, a concept developed and designed by #Teambrown. I aim to provide parents, families and schools with a bespoke education service that promotes progress, achievement and well-being. From grammar school tutoring to growth mindset workshops, bespoke interventions for schools to tailored training packages, educational consultancy for families to professional support for business, I intend to provide a person centred approach which seeks to realise aspirations and exceed potential.
So that’s my shameless plug! If you would like to read more, firstly I thank you and secondly please visit http://www.gofisheducation.com. If you would also be so kind as to like and share my philosophy and practice I would be very grateful!
#Teambrown are by no means out of the woods yet but it definitely feels as though we can see the future with more clarity and perspective. Mrs Brown will still be around sharing her witterings on the web but with the launch of Go Fish Education I will have something else to keep me occupied and out of trouble!
Thank you so much for your support and compassion to this point and I really hope you will continue the journey with me. The confidence to go out on my own has been the result of all the wonderful words of encouragement that I have received through the blog over recent months. I couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you xxx
