/ NEW ARTICLE: I Want That Job! Andi T - Teacher & Instructor
It's the turn of Forum User Andi Turner to persuade us all why we want his job. Andi mixes normal class teaching with outdoor instructing; giving a blend of job security and professional salary with the chance to get out in to the hills and promote the sports that he loves. Can we blame him for all this group abseiling at the Roaches?! Probably...
“I ain't eating no dirty beans!...”

Good Grief, I now know where people learn to use words in such a peculiar fashion.
Good article. AT really comes over well, not surprisingly.
From a very proud sister (and feldgling climber) Andi is a real credit to himself. The kid did good.

With skill, humour and originality, you mean? If the kids he teaches become writers half as good as Andi is he'll have performed a significant public service.
I've never seen him with a hair in place.
We could have a whip round to fund a haircut? I'll donate!
Dream job come true ? Andi must be a saint.

I'll cut! Bring my clippers along.
Actually he did have it cut short once and I completely failed to recognise him!
And am I the first person to notice the misplaced "their" in the Dream Job paragraph? (Should be "there")
Them's some eagle eye's you got their. Fancy doing some marking?
Must be nice to have the perfect job, well apart from the teaching bit of it!
I just seem to notice things like that. I'd be a hopeless teacher, though, especially with the children you work with - respect to you, that isn't a job I'd want to do.
I hope some of the kids appreciate what the likes of andi do for them!
True. Respect to Andi for doing a job that I wouldn't be prepared to do, and which can really make a difference to some of these 'young adults'. I find vet undergrads disruptive enough!
And yes, I'll be there to hold a limb while we cut of his Samson hair!!
