Current RoleConsultant/adviser

I am a Mathematics Subject Specialist for STEM Learning. Based at the National STEM Learning Centre in York, I support with secondary mathematics curriculum resources, projects and CPD.

Over the past decade I have taught mathematics in a number of schools both in Leeds and in New Zealand, and held a variety of positions in maths departments and within the wider school.

Areas of interest include teaching for problem solving, using manipulatives in the classroom, and making use of mathematics to support learning across the STEM subjects.
