He "interviewed" me. Was basically a case of:
When can you start?
Can you turn up every week?
Can you see out the year?
Can you prepare and mark all of the homework in your own time?
I was desperate, what could I say?
Gardner gave me the book, quote from him -
What really struck me was how he spent so much time bad-mouthing the other CSD managers. Dan, Steve, and someone else I cannot remember. And, I'll hand it to Anthony Gardner, he can do impressions really well. It progressed to him running down the other teachers. He didn't have a good word to say about anybody. Managers, teachers, Japanese staff. Anybody. Probably me included.Here you go, it's crap.
I kept in touch with one of the other CSD teachers. He says Gardner scrambled up the pole and sacked all the full-time teachers, plus the other managers.
