About Us

David Whitney

I am a full-time primary school teacher in England.  But before that, I received a 1st class BA in Philosophy from Lancaster University and a Masters degree in Philosophy and Social Theory from the University of Warwick, where I read a lot of books about the philosophy of childhood and education.  After a couple of years working at the Qualifications and Curriculum Development Agency, I completed a PGCE at Warwick University in 2012 and began teaching.  I started to teach philosophy to children a year later, and I’ve since put in place bespoke programs of philosophy, RE and PSHE across a federation of local schools.  When I’m not teaching, I relentlessly talk about teaching to my family and friends, listen to strange music, play childish games and make origami animals for no obvious reason.  I’ve also started writing philosophical stories for children and was more surprised than anyone when I discovered children wanted to listen to them.

You can read an interview I did with Joana Rita Sousa about my views on philosophy for children here.

I am a full-time primary school teacher in England with an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and Christian Theology from Liverpool Hope University. In 2016, I successfully completed my PGCE at the University of Warwick and I have been teaching ever since. I have always enjoyed getting creative and spend most of my weekends drawing something (mostly animals wearing funky outfits). I also love singing dramatically to Disney soundtracks, pretending to have a Yorkshire accent and buying unnecessary yet satisfying stationary sets. Getting the chance to dive into the world of Delphi has been an amazing journey that has combined my love of all things colourful with my ever-questioning philosophy brain. It has been an absolute joy to design and bring the character of Delphi and her story to life!
