11/1 I plan to remove the large desk from the room with the wooden floor to create more space for the classes. If you would like to have the desk (free) please let me know in the next few days or I will invite a charity shop to take it away. It is a solid wood old-fashioned schoolmaster's/schoolmistress' desk with 7 drawers, measuring approximately 4'5"/135 cm wide and 2'5"/75 cm deep and high.
Jenny's Classes - for teachers and trainee teachers
Jenny Fox Eades teaches adult education classes in Macclesfield and South Manchester and welcomes teachers and trainee teachers as teachers and/or as assistants or students (@ £10/class) as appropriate.
Jenny has more than 30 years' experience (5 with the A.T.) teaching groups and a PhD in Well-being in Education. She also has professional qualifications in group skills and dynamics. As well as modelling the skills that make teaching in general, and group teaching in particular, a joy and a success, Jenny explains to visiting teachers and trainee teachers the group processes and dynamics behind these skills and provides safe opportunities for them to practice the skills for themselves in a supportive environment.
