TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching in Scottish Secondary schools since 1994. Since 1999 I have been a department head. I am an author of two text books, dozens of free/paid resources and have been downloaded over a million times all over the world. In addition to school work I have been employed by Scotland's Exam Board (Scottish Qualifications Authority) to write national exams and coursework tasks. I was part of the working group that implemented Scotland's new National 5 Computing Science course.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I am an imaginative, highly creative teacher who loves to try new approaches in my classroom.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Many of my resources have been tagged as excellent by the Resources team on TES Resources. They have featured often in their quarterly newsletters and regularly appear in the top 10 downloads for Computing (out of 10,000 resources).

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

BSc in Science (Chemistry & Computing) Post Graduate Diploma in Systems Integration PCGE in Secondary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I have a love of competitive sport, music, walking my Labradoodle and have a season ticket (along with my son) for Dunfermline Athletic Football (Soccer) Club.
