Interests : I now work as a independent Maths Education consultant after 13 years with the NCETM.

I was fortunate to be able to be able to train as both a Primary teacher and a secondary teacher of Mathematics. During my teaching career, I taught in Infant, Primary, Middle and Secondary Schools and latterly in a Sixth Form College where I taught all stages of Mathematics from Entry Level to A-level. After leaving the classroom, I worked on several projects including the Standards Unit ‘Improving learning in mathematics’ and on Thinking Through Mathematics and Learning Mathematics in Context before joining the National Centre at its foundation.

I believe that teachers need to network and work collaboratively. I served twice on the ACME committee. I was a NANAMIC committee member and a member of the MA Council for several years. I am now a member of the ATM, the MA and NANAMIC.

I am as enthusiastic (perhaps even more so) about teaching maths as I was when I started my career, and, am particularly interested in the foundations of mathematical thinking and how we can enable students to build a strong foundation from which they can progress and enjoy their mathematical journey.
