Who Are We?

Welcome to the Goodeyedeers Blog.

Goodeyedeers was started by two retired educators – Mike Jackson and David Horner. Our aim is to share with you some of the expertise we have gathered over the years and to be able to do it from the comfort of our homes rather than go into schools!

So, who are we?


Mike Jackson

Mike is a retired primary school headteacher. Over 25 years he was head of three different primary schools in Warrington. He always had a great passion for learning and a particular interest in how teachers can harness the potential of technology to enhance that learning. Since retirement, Mike has been following his love of storytelling and has a blog where he publishes his flash fiction. He also enjoys Twitter Fiction! You can find him at @mj51day.





David Horner

Before his retirement, David was a full-time freelance writer and performer; provider of workshops and in-service training sessions.  He spent a number of years delivering readings, performances, workshops, training sessions, lectures to around five hundred schools: nursery, primary, secondary and special.   He also worked with higher education students/lecturers, librarians and community workers.   He has had a number of his poems published in many magazines and anthologies; won prizes in national competitions as well as being  broadcast on BBC local and national radio and on television.


So, that’s us …

We are currently combining our experience and expertise to create resources for teachers. These can be found at TES Resources under Goodeyedeers.
