Interests : I trained as a secondary school teacher of mathematics and worked in a number of schools in Inner London, following a pastoral rather than subject specific route. To gain experience of the commercial world, I also worked in sales and marketing and my entrepreneurial instincts resulted in the creation of a couple of small businesses. At this time I also obtained an MBA. This work led onto employment in the online education sector and following some time writing online educational materials for virtual provision for excluded pupils, I moved to the London Grid for Learning, promoting the use of broadband enabled technology and resources.

Returning to my mathematical roots at the NCETM felt like ‘coming home’ as I was able to combine two of my particular interests; mathematics education and online education and communication. I am particularly interested in how teachers could use technology and gaming in the classroom and in how they could use social media to aid their professional development.

In fact, my interest in online education was so deep that once I saw something that really impressed me, I just had to start working for them. So, I am now Chief executive of Mathspace UK, a new company that has just launched an online product that enables teachers to see the working out their pupils do when solving problems.

Lesson Study
The "Teaching Gap" by Stigler and Hiebert highlights the success of lesson study in Japan, but can this be translated to this country? This community is aimed at those groups of teachers who want to know more about it, and who are willing to share their own journey of discovery with others. It is not for the faint-hearted, but for those who really want to find out for themselves.
