About me

I’m Anthony Cockerill.

I began my career teaching English — and continue to work as Head of Department — in a North Yorkshire secondary school. I began blogging about teaching English, writing and the written word a number of years ago.

As my blog has continued to grow, there have been many great opportunities to share ideas and support others, such as contributing to professional networks and leading a writing workshop at NATE’s 2019 conference.

I’ve written features for NATE’s Teaching English and for Teach Secondary, and I’m currently exploring ways to expand the scope of my feature writing.

I also enjoy using my aptitude for writing — and the skills I’ve learned as a blogger — to help other people showcase their work and grow their organisations.
