What do you read first?

I scan the contents and go to whatever takes my fancy. The letters page is great for "taking the temperature" of what's exciting and upsetting teachers.

What should there be more of in TESS?

More on what our university education researchers are discovering and how it might influence education in the future.

Who would you like to see writing in TESS?

Norman Drummond, former headteacher and founder of Columba 1400, who's been described as "one of the most inspiring and talented Scots of his generation".

What's the best thing we've done?

Provide accessible snippets and more in-depth pieces.

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

"Finally, 50 per cent of primary teachers are male!"
