I qualified in 2005 and my career to date has included positions such as Maths Co-ordinator, English Co-ordinator and I am currently Year Group Leader. I have observed others teaching, led intervention programmes and carried out staff meetings. In addition to this, daily teaching tasks involve assessment through marking books and assessment of extended writing tasks. Proof reading is therefore a necessary skill that I use every day. I have used various levelling tools, whereby we have to analyse children's work against lists of criteria, and complete spreadsheets for each child to assess what they can do and what their next steps are. I have also led staff training and moderation on this.
This is just a snap shot of the relevant experience that teaching provides me with. I am also an avid reader and have a love of a wide range of books. I am currently reading a Philippa Gregory novel as I love how she brings history to life.
My degree is BA Honours Historical Studies for which I was awarded a 2.1 in 1997. However I also have GCSE and A Level English.
