As the bell goes: Audio reflections

Teacher - Chris Grady

I am a secondary teacher, in a large 11-18 school. I teach from Y7 through to Y13 core Maths and mechanics. Prior to becoming a teacher I work as a mechanial engineer for 3 years. These reflections were completed whilst I was an ITT on my second placement of my PGCE course, in the same school I now work in.
