Roaming Schoolhouse is #BestJobEver. Originally, I got involved to save this invaluable service from closure, initially for my own children but now for the five or six hundred children who have benefited from our school. With CELTA and Jolly Phonics training as my qualifications, there's nothing I like to see more than the look of dawning realisation on a child's face.
