Writing articles has been my bucket list for so long. In the past six months I have managed to write an article a month. After remote teaching the staffroom was abuzz with conversations about whether we'll be pushed to remote teach more and I kept reflecting on who are the winners and who are the losers in this teaching model. Here is my first byline in The Guardian about my experience. And the rest of my articles in the post below.
