slightly off topic but some g40 related banter
« on: March 05, 2008, 07:14:04 pm »
well guys im off for an interview for a proper job tomorrow!!  I initially did a degree in vehicle design for four years, got a 2:1 and then decided it wasnt for me, sitting in a design studio all day.  Anyway decided to give teaching a shot (yes some people do repond to the adverts)  anyway i've loved it!  I teach in a secondary school at the minute as part of my teacher training and i've been teaching a bit/working with some sixth formers which is even better.  The kids love a bit of car banter from time to time and ill probably start a cool wall with a g40 on it to get them talking when i have my own room etc....  Kids repond much better to G40's when they hear them and come in the next day!  'sir whats that car, it sounds mint!'

anyway, i applied for a job at another school to start in september and with a bit of luck ill get it, teaching design technology, (electronics/product design/graphics etc),  im dying to get another job cos i really wanna get my G painted and start on a new project possibly a turbo or a another G40 toy.  

well thats about it, wish me luck, well off topic i know but its decent i thought...

i'll update with details tomorrow, good or bad!  interview is all day!  gotta teach a lesson, lunch with the staff, formal interview tour of the school etc, and now i need the toilet!

nice one mate, be pretty cool to be a DT teacher.  If I remember rightly it's a right skyve!  I don't remember the teacher doing a huge amount when I did GSCE design tech. ;)

Congrats Dan.  I might need to pick your brain in future for help with my product design degree.

I'd have been seriously impressed if my teacher at school had a G40.
