After regularly sharing teaching & learning ideas/resources on my Twitter and Instagram pages, I felt it was time to set up a space where I can share ideas and resources in more depth.
Previously, I was Head of Department at Elfed High School North Wales. I started my career in 2010 as a NQT at this school, which was rated as ‘Excellent’ in the 2015 Estyn inspection report. During my time at Elfed High School I taught History, my main area of specialism, at key stages three, four and five. I also taught Government and Politics, Religious Studies and Welsh Second Language. I have achieved Lead Practitioner status, through whole school leadership developing bilingualism. I have also visited St. Joseph’s College, Anradaphura in Sri Lanka as part of the British Council Connecting Classrooms project and hosted their visit to Wales.
After joining Twitter in February, 2015 I have since become aware of the amazing CPD phenomenon “Teach Meet”. I attended #TMLondon in March 2015, then attended many more Teach Meet events both as an attendee and presenter. I organised, hosted and presented at both #TMNWales and #TMHistoryIcons.
Currently I am History Coordinator at Brighton College Al Ain in the United Arab Emirates. I am also busy writing my first educational book – Love to Teach: sharing teaching and learning ideas for every classroom.
Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope there are some ideas and inspiration for you and your pupils!
