After graduating I spent a year living and working in Toronto. Returning to the UK to complete a PGCE in science where I discovered my passion for teaching the younger generations. Since then I have started collecting elements and launching rockets (current number of elements is 28, succesful rocket launches 133 (98 by students). Lastly my favourite quotes: 1. "le chimie créé son propre sujet"--Berthelot. 2. "A fact acquires its true and full value only through the idea which is developed from it" -- Liebig. 3. "One should always aspire to inspire the uninspired".
