TEACHING EXPERIENCE

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelor of Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

I love sharing what I teach with other teachers. I don't charge too much for my work ( just pocket money) I don't want to make it difficult for people to access my ideas and use them with their children. I love reading classic literature to children and using it as the basis of my theme work. Technology, art, creative writing and personalised learning are important ingredients in my unit plans. I don't put anything on TPT unless I've road tested it myself.
