Principals' teaching load

I WAS delighted to read that Lesley Agar, principal and chief executive, Hull College (Letters, FE Focus, February 4) does a little teaching.

It goes to show that my call for a new model college in which senior managers undertake a minimum of four hours' teaching a week is not as outrageous as the senior management in my college made out when it was put to them by my NATFHE branch. hey were horrified.

One thing in Lesley Agar's letter puzzles me, though.

What was in my original letter that could possibly have led her to conclude that I consider teaching to be a punishment?

Like her, I do a little teaching - actually, more than just a little - and I don't feel that 1 am being punished.
