TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have experience of teaching a range of children from age 5-18 years. I have taught in various subject areas, but have a specialism in Maths and Science. Through my teaching career, I have taught full classes and on a one-to-one basis, including young people with learning and behavioural difficulties. My teacher training took place in England, but I have since worked in Scotland and have planned curriculum based projects for clients around the World through freelance work.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is mainly a combination of facilitator and delegator. I do occasionally use the demonstrator model, however I prefer to have children investigate the World around them and come up with their own theories and ideas before adding to what they have found out for themselves. I am a string believer in student led learning as it gives the student the opportunity to raise questions and develop their own styles for a lifetime of learning.

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

I have a full BA(hons) degree in Primary education and have also been granted Qualified Teacher Status (QTS). One of my greatest achievements has been when I met the Education Minister of Scotland and he commended our small team of six educators for being pioneers in developing and implementing the Curriculum for Excellence in Scotland.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

I studied a variety of subjects at secondary school in Scotland, before training as a teacher in England. Once I completed my training I began teaching as a supply teacher in Cumbria in Primary schools. I taught every subject imaginable, as well as in various types of schools including private, special needs and religious schools. I gained full time employment in 2010 in a special secondary school, where I moved from primary teaching to secondary, but still taught a wide variety of subjects. During this time I mainly worked one-to-one with pupils and feel very proud to say I supported a number of them through qualifications before they left school. In the summer of 2014 I quit teaching in schools and opened my own craft shop in my local town. I still teach youngsters arts and crafts, and also tutor occasionally.

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

As well as having taught in numerous schools, I have returned to my previous secondary regularly to hep with school productions etc and often get involved in local youth groups; such as the Girls Brigade. I also make jewellery in my spare time and now run evening classes for adults in this area. On top of my various hobbies etc, I have taught myself British Sign Language and continue to work for education providers through freelance planning work where I develop resources and planning for various subjects.
