I grew up in the midlands in the UK and studied at universities all over the country. As a committed life-long learner, I have earned a first class degree in humanities, a master’s degree in philosophy, post-graduate certificates in social science research and teaching qualifications in both further and primary education! My teaching career began as a seminar lecturer for under graduates before moving into A-level teaching and onward to my current incarnation as a primary teacher. I have worked in primary schools in the UK, Thailand, Hong Kong and now I look forward to adding the USA to that list. My passion is getting children to think and to learn for themselves. The future is a mysterious place and it is only by furnishing children with the skills and passion to learn for themselves that we can prepare them for what it may hold.
