I work in a recently converted Academy school in Essex, which provides for students aged 11-18 years. I have been teaching since 2008/9 and in that time have been: Aim Higher Co-ordinator, 2 i/c Humanities department and an Aspiring Lead Practitioner with whole school responsibility for MAGT students. My new challenge this year is specialising in KS5 teaching & learning, as an Aspiring Lead Practitioner.
I am also a GTP/NQT mentor, 6th form tutor and teacher of History, and Government & Politics. (I’ve dabbled in teaching GCSE Psychology and GCSE Sociology too!)
I have a passion for helping others develop, regardless of whether they are fellow teachers or students. I firmly believe in a classroom culture of hard work, curiosity, mutual trust and respect, passion and independence.
