As the bell goe: Audio reflections

Teacher - Helen Adey

I am in my second year of teaching in an 11-18 mixed comprehensive in the North East.  I teach across the ability range from 11-16 and teach Decision Maths at A-level.  I also have a pastoral role in school. Prior to teaching I worked in London as a Sales Executive.
