TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for seven years and have been designing integrated curriculum for six.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I believe that every child is able to succeed and that the curriculum needs to be tailored to the child, playing on their interests and strengths, putting their learning in contexts that matter.
