“Deciding to join UKLA is one of the most life-changing, life-enriching decisions I have made as a teacher. People whose research has shaped my practice so significantly are so willing to share their enthusiasm and expertise, and being part of this vibrant community has given me a professional confidence to hold on to my principles that I wouldn't otherwise have. ”
