Pen PortraitI am a retired mathematics lecturer, having spent 36 years in teaching. My teaching experience is mainly in secondary and FE but I have also taught in the primary sector. My speciality was in teaching mathematics in context to show how it applies to ‘real world’ situations and in other curriculum areas. During my career I held several management positions as well as being Union Branch Secretary in a large FE College. I have been a School Governor for 23 years. I am passionate about children’s education and believe that our school should provide the best education and opportunities it can for all our children while still retaining its community links and church values and ethos.
