New Guy

He started today. He's from Hertfordshire, is about 33 years old and has been teaching since 1999. I only had a few minutes to chat with him so can't form an impression yet. He seems like a decent bloke, but time will tell. He's married, but his wife is back in the UK til he gets settled in. His accent is a bit odd.

Red Flags:

- He said that he's very apprehensive about driving on the 'wrong' side of the road. Here we go again?

- He tried to get out of working at 7h30 (we all work at that time twice a week) by saying that he's not a morning person. Neither am I! If anyone's getting off the 7h30 shift, it's going to be me!
