Lynette graduated from the University of Birmingham with a Masters degree in Biological Science (Honors). Through the Teach First programme Lynette then went on to gain her PGCE at Birmingham City University and has taught all disciplines of Science to Key Stage 4 and Biology at A level in secondary schools in inner city Coventry. Lynette’s passion for trying new projects and engaging students inside and outside of the classroom has resulted in her leading the Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) club, running the Duke of Edinburgh bronze award and achieving the role of Head of Key stage 3.
Lynette’s interest in teaching methodology and teacher training led to her being offered the role of associate tutor and facilitator with Teach First to aid the training of subsequent cohorts, as well as providing CPD for local teachers in Guyana, South America during the summer. Lynette has always sought to merge her passion for Science with her love of working with children and desire to inspire and broaden the horizons of the next generation with exciting and inspiring lessons. When a Science position was advertised at BISS, Lynette was attracted to the opportunity to teach in one of the best globally linked schools, who share her teaching philosophies and the opportunity to experience one of the most extraordinary and exciting countries in the world.
