About the Author

Bio

Hello, and welcome to MorningChallenge.co.uk. My name is Daniel Wilson and I trained as a primary teacher in the UK. I have experience of working with years 1-6, as both a teaching assistant and a class teacher, and, after spending time working in Hampshire, Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, in England,  I took the opportunity to widen my horizons and gain international experience. I currently work in Abu Dhabi, in the United Arab Emirates, as a prep school teacher in Year 4.

 

The Evolution of an Idea

As part of an educational research project, in 2017, I was lucky enough to visit schools in both Denmark and Finland. My experiences made me eager to produce resources and dynamics that facilitated, rather than forced, learning. The site aims to help teachers, around the world, build learning spaces within which the children take ownership of their education and develop confidence - student-led classrooms that engage, inspire and enhance progress. 

 

Dedications

This site is dedicated to Leo (RIP. The best friend a man could ever have and the star of the daily morning challenge) & the Livingstone Owls of 2017/18 who taught me as much as I taught them - collectively and individually, coping with everything I threw at them whilst owning every second along the way. Continue making me proud guys, you rock!
