I am a Mathematics Teacher at Barnwell School in Stevenage, teaching KS3 to KS5. Prior to teaching I worked in the retail industry delivering strategic change projects and I am trained in people management, coaching, mentoring, personal leadership, personal effectiveness and situational leadership. I enjoy bringing these skills into teaching to make sustainable improvements for our students.
I believe it is extremely important for teachers to remain reflective and aim to continuously improve on their practice. From my personal experience, the most exciting ideas I have used within the classroom have come from networking with teachers both inside and outside of my school.
I have recently completed the Teaching Advanced Mathematics course with MEI and the University of Cambridge allowing me to explore new teaching methods to promote a strong understanding of advanced mathematics and am currently coordinating the smooth transition to the new A Level structure. I have experience in mentoring trainee teachers and delivering whole school CPD on engaging classroom activities, student resilience and raising pupil premium achievement.
