Freya Parsons - Maths

 

I have been teaching mathematics for over 10 years, in a variety of schools and positions. As a Teach First graduate, I began my career in a challenging school in East London, before moving out to Hertfordshire as a Key Stage 3 leader of Maths, HoD and now Lead Practitioner at my current school, The Priory School.

 

In this role I have been involved in improving teaching and learning across the school and more specifically, a focus on developing mathematics across the curriculum. This has involved me creating a form-time numeracy program, delivering staff CPD and supporting HoDs on the content and delivery of mathematics in their subject areas.

 

I am a University of Hertfordshire accredited ITT mentor and have led subject training days for their maths trainees. I have also worked with local primary schools and have delivered enrichment sessions to their high ability students and SATs masterclasses.

 

Teaching mathematics is a passion of mine and I have previously volunteered during school holidays in temporary schools at the Calais and Dunkirk camps, teaching mathematics to refugee children and adults.
