Ark's teachers have their say

Everyone has had at least one teacher in their life that inspired them. But what inspires teachers?

What sparked their interest in teaching?

How do they get through the difficult days? And how do they work to get better? We spoke to dozens of teachers from across Ark’s schools in Birmingham, Hastings, London and Portsmouth. Although they come from very different backgrounds, we found, when it comes to life in their classrooms – teachers all have a lot in common.
