My most recent post was at Leman International School, Chengdu, China. My wife and I taught there for 5 years, during which it became part of the Nord Anglia Group. We are pleased to continuing in the group and in another school which sets high standards, though we are enjoying the move to a larger school with new colleagues and new experiences with a European flavour.
I have taught for 30 years - 10 years in China, two years in Thailand, one year in Qatar and 17 years in United Kingdom. I have school management experience, but have returned to my passion, which is being in the classroom with creative and inquisitive young people. I love Mathematics but am also keen on most sports and have coached football for many years.
I am happiest when I am sat at home after a great day’s walk talking about the sights and people I have met. It is similar after a day’s skiing or perhaps the first encounter with a new city. Maybe even better, is when a student makes me think about my beliefs in a new way, particularly about mathematics.
