Jack Dawes is a retired teacher, having spent forty-two years at the chalk face in a number of establishments across the country. He has experienced teaching at the sharp end in the State sector and also at the other end in the independent sector. He has taught science and computing (mainly) to children whose ages range from 4 years to 19 years, but has also covered lessons in virtually every other subject - Languages, Art, Drama, Maths, Design & Technology, English, Classics, History and R.E.
As a retiree, Jack enjoys working on his allotment and his garden. For many years he enjoyed cycling, but this is diminishing as the traffic grows on the roads and he is not a young man any more. Walking appears to be the way forward. He has developed an appreciation of good wine after many years of practise and also enjoys a glass or three of real ale from time to time. Holidays abroad are an important part of his retirement, especially in the sun, where he can spend time walking and visiting the many beautiful areas on this planet.
He has been blessed with two daughters and two grandchildren, with whom he corresponds with regularly, but only occasionally visits because of the large distances involved.
Jack lives in Stamford with his wife who goes into town shopping on a Saturday afternoon, while he watches the footy on the television ...
