Profile summary

After completing my degree in Mathematical Sciences, I joined the Graduate Teacher Programme to train as a Primary School Teacher at a Primary School in Ash.  After completing the programme, I remained teaching there for fifteen years.  As well as being a Classroom Teacher, I also had responsibility for leading Mathematics across the school and covered the role of Deputy Head.

    In 2008, I became a Lead Teacher in Mathematics.  This role involved supporting and coaching colleagues in other schools. In 2010, I was seconded for a year to ASK (Advisory Service for Kent) as a Primary Mathematics Consultant delivering training and supporting schools. In 2012, I completed the Mast programme to become a ‘Specialist Teacher in Mathematics’ and was awarded 120 credits towards a Masters Degree.  This programme enabled me to carry out research in chosen areas of mathematics and apply theory into practice.  Also in 2012, I became an Associate Lecturer for the Mathematics team at Canterbury Christ Church University.

In January 2016, I joined Canterbury Christ Church University as a Senior Lecturer in the School of Teacher Education and Development.  I have primarily been teaching mathematics on Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses, but have also taught some computing on the Postgraduate course.  As part of my professional development, I am enrolled on the PGCAP – Post Graduate Certificate in Academic Practice.  The PGCAP will also provide credits towards completing a Masters Degree.  I am also currently developing materials for the online ‘Subject Knowledge Enhancement’ course for Primary Mathematics.
