As the bell goes: Audio reflections

Teacher - Claire Meakin

I am currently teaching at Penair School in Truro and have been here since my NQT year - I am just completing my third year.  I'm also an ITT mentor for SCITT trainees so I hope to offer reflections on lessons that trainees taught as well as lessons that I teach whilst being observed.
