TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have taught in the UK for nearly twenty years. Like any of us I am most happy cutting up and sticking, but then came the laminator - if it moved it was plasticised! BUT then came the computer....ah! I love to create and and this is a great way to play without getting messy!

MY TEACHING STYLE

My classes think I'm a bit of mad frog!

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

The day a student said to me, 'I've learn't more from you than any other teacher we have had' - Job done!

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Reading taught me most of what I know - read!
