I am an experiences teacher who has taught in all year groups. I have been teaching for 7 years and have worked in a large challenging school in East London as well as a smaller school in Birmingham. I have spent the last 3 years as a member of the leadership team within the Arthur Terry Learning Partnership where I have been teaching my own class as well as coaching and mentoring staff to develop teaching and learning.
I am passionate about creating a safe, fun and respectful environment were children take responsibility for their own learning, whilst being challenged to achieve their own personal best. I use a blend of humour and clear behaviour strategies to form quick strong relationships with staff and children to create a strong working environment. I have experience working in prison delivering mentoring and parental workshops were clear boundaries need to be established quickly. I have taken many of these strategies into my own practice. I also am active in an African charity which involves work with the poorest communities in the world. This experience helps me to motivate my students and develop rounded students who appreciate all the opportunities we have.
