My name is Alex. I am a 30-something UK content producer who successfully quit teaching (primary) after 8 years.
I was told by almost everyone that many try to leave but get stuck out of fear. Fear that they couldn't find anything else, that they had no other skills.
I found a way out, now I want to show others that they can do it, too.
I now write words for a living, a dream job, and I couldn't be happier. This site is a portfolio of my work, where I share my journey, progress, tips and tricks.

It doesn't get any more awkward than a 20 minute conversation about saunas.
Headteacher Ruth Perry’s death is a warning to teachers: the education system doesn’t care about you and it never will.
There was only so much I could take before I realised I hadn't been happy for nearly ten years.
