TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have been teaching for over 20 years. For the past ten I have been a teaching principal. New entrants has been my passion for over ten years. I have a passion for mantle of the expert and a love of growth mindset teaching. Over the last two years I have designed a drama for learning approach to the teaching of maths. I call this number agents. It combines play, drama and problem solving and has transformed my maths programme. If you want to know more find me on facebook under number agents or look up my blog numberagents.blogspot.com The resources I share on here are largely connected to this programme.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach in a play based classroom using a drama for inquiry approach called Mantle of the Expert. My classroom is collaborative and based on empathy, imagination and kindness. I want children to be creative problem solvers who understand the power of mistakes.
