Rod has been a primary school teacher in the public sector for the last 11 years. In September 2011 he moved into the private sector and is working full-time with a class of 7 and 8-year-olds at Dallington School near the Barbican. Over the last four years he has introduced children to the Universe Story and has found that  they have a deep enthusiasm and connection to the Story. Together with 'circle thread discussion' and 'Sitting Still';  Rod feels that these are essential ingredients for the 'New Education' that will equip today's young children to live in the interconnected; ever-expanding  and fast-changing world in which we all live.
