The Fable of Education and Training

Abstract

Anya majored in English and History in her undergraduate studies, taking Latin as a minor, going on to complete a masters degree in English Literature. Since qualifying as a high school teacher, she has taught in state schools — mostly taking English classes but, when needs be, also history (and, previously, Latin). Her passion is English Literature, which she considers to be not just immensely enjoyable and engaging, but also informative in its multitudinous portrayals of the human condition, and character building, in the way in which readers develop understanding of themselves through engagement in those portrayals and their consequences. Such interests led her into teaching, which she enjoys immensely, while also finding it challenging, frustrating in many ways, and quite exhilarating.
