Hello, I'm Martine. I'm a Guernsey-based teacher specialising in teacher education and technology for learning. I am also a blogger and podcaster. You can find out more about me at theteachingspace.com.
I teach adults (usually colleagues or trainee teachers/trainers) and it's important I treat my learners as such. I try to model best practice at all times while creating a relaxed, fun environment. I believe we learn best when smiling.
Google Certified Trainer
My pre-teaching career includes a combination of sales, marketing, recruitment, corporate training and finance. I left a senior role in the finance sector, aged 30, to pursue teaching. I wanted to do something that mattered. I studied my teacher training qualification on the job and achieved QTLS a few years later.
When I am not teaching, blogging or podcasting I can be found chasing after my beloved dog on one of Guernsey's fabulous beaches.
