    9 years in this school. Before that a number of FE colleges and a special school.

    Overall 22 years in educational IT - where did the time go!

    I only got into it after spending a few years doing electronics/IT for a company making aircraft and weapons equipment and thinking what a really rubbish industry I was in and that I must be able to make better and more positive use of my skills.

    9 years this summer in this place, 3 years in senior/junior/infant before that, some time also in county council mainframe/BACS/outreach team where we would go into schools as needed.

    Good fun. This year will be my 9th and final year at this building, as it's being demolished..that's going to feel odd. New building is almost complete though, so that'll be fun.

    3 years now.

    Before that I was a software developer for a management consultancy firm. What a soulless industry that is. Glad to get out and into a job that actually meant something.

    Counting down the months to the 5 year marker - April 2010 - then I get an extra 5 days holiday each year

    If only I could find the time to take all 22days I'm given at the moment

    Total, including volunteer stuff at the beginning 15 years in various schools including several that I was attending at the time. That is more than half my current life span. Eeek

    2 years next month as Network Manager in my present consortium of primary schools.

    Prior to this:
    19 months as Network Manager comprehensive school
    5 months relaxing after redundancy
    8 years 2 months as Chief Technician Computing and Video then Chief Technician Computing then Virtual Reality and Digital Studio Manager for a university
    2 years 5 months as Senior Computer Technician for an FE college.

    I keep thinking about moving out of education but for all its faults it not a bad job.
