GBA 341 Jonathan

In GBA 341 we get better acquainted with Jonathan. Surrounded by packed boxes in an echoey flat the day before my move began we finally meet each other after years of hearing about each other. Jonathan has worked very with my partner Jen for three years as the class teacher to her teaching assistant for year 6 classes in a primary school. We talk about the way that working with Jen has changed how he thinks of teaching assistants, his journey from class clown to sports coach to learning mentor to class teacher to senior management, his interest in street fashion which has developed into the successful menswear fashion blog Street Clobber (11K followers on Instagram), developing and creating a menswear label and brand, becoming a new father, and about juggling all these parts of his life.
