TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I love teaching and I love teaching high school (secondary in the UK) students. If I didn't I wouldn't have been doing it for 14 years I guess! I specialise in History with experience of English, Geography, Religious Studies and Humanities. I have been a Head of Dept f and currently am an advanced lead teacher in Humanities, focusing on helping teachers be the best they can be across the school. I enjoy all things history and aim to personalise my students historical studies. So I LOVE Local History! (Maybe its because I'm nosey?) Here's an article I had published in national journal TEACHING HISTORY on my Local History project. http://www.history.org.uk/resources/secondary_resource_6498.html It might give you taste of how I like to teach...

MY TEACHING STYLE

All sorts. Whatever works for the students in front of me. From interactive and independent group work to discussion and lecture. Either way I want the students to be working harder than their teacher!
