TEACHING EXPERIENCE

A bit about me: Before teaching, I was a journalist. I still work as a freelance writer, and like nothing more than writing engaging texts to challenge and inspire children and young people. I choose subjects that may not be on the curriculum but are still of great importance for students to know about. Everything I write has been comprehensively researched from a number of sources and been written by myself. No plagiarism here! This is all original material. My questions are pitched at a high level, but with a bit of patience and persistence (and some adult help if necessary) most students will have great fun as they learn, especially as the penny drops I am aware of the impact of printed resources on our environment so try to condense my reading activities into as compact a space as possible. Hopefully this will help you save time in printing, and keep the bills down! Check out my store if you like the sound of this – you’re sure to find something that will engage your students. Thanks!

MY TEACHING STYLE

Teaching should be rooted in the here and now. As a teacher, I'm acutely aware of the need to drop whatever may have been planned and respond to world events. My class keeps a keen eye on the news, and our literacy and reading projects reflect this.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

After working as a journalist for the BBC, I decided to change career and train as a teacher. I have written youth and children's resources for a number of organisations and enjoy delivering these to my own classes.
