Purple is my favourite colour, as are many of its shades that make up its colour fabric: violet, lavender, mauve, lilac, eggplant, grape, plum, iris, rasin, and so on.

Purple is often attributed to the unique, unusual, unforgettable… maybe some other ‘you’ words.

Purple is prominently part of the LGBTQ+ identity.

Purple is associated with the IATEFL Teacher Development Special Interest Group, of which I’m currently the Coordinator, not that this space is associated with it, but my own personal and professional development is.

It has nothing to do with Prince, at least not here.

I am purple.

This space acts as a public space for me to explore my own development towards social awareness, responsibility, and ownership both outside and inside my teaching.
