As the bell goes: Audio reflections

Teacher - Kate McCluskey

Teacher - Kate McCluskeyI have been a Maths teacher for 7 years and I teach across the full range of key stages and abilities. I am a Deputy Director of Maths in Durham in a specialist Science college and Training School. We ask ITT's and NQT's to reflect upon their teaching and evaluate the learning of their students all of the time and so the project was particularly appealing to me as an experienced teacher. I know that I assess the effectiveness of my teaching and the progress made by my students informally but it was really interesting to talk about it (even if only to a dictaphone!).
