Subscriber of the week - Alan McHardy, from near Inverness

21st October 2011 at 01:00

What do you do?

I'm in the final year of a primary B.Ed at Aberdeen University.

When did you start subscribing?

I was at the Scottish Learning Festival and, as our tutors have often made reference to how useful TESS is, I thought I'd better subscribe.

What do you read first?

I often jump to the news section.

What should there be more of in TESS?

Advice for young teachers entering the profession?

Who would you like to see writing in TESS?

Being a student, I often find it very interesting hearing from new teachers about their experiences.

What's the best thing we've done?

Given students a discounted subscription for the first few months - we have to count the pennies.

What would you be excited to see on the front page?

An article about the do's and don'ts of the profession - perhaps tips for the first day.
