I have a passion for education and a love of learning! I am constantly striving to improve my own skills and knowledge. Take a look at my blog to see my passions and take part in my reading challenge.


I studied mathematics to degree level and have a very analytical mind. I am great with figures, formulas, data tables, diagrams, map reading and finer details. I am also a maths checker and have experience of checking all levels of maths from primary to degree level working with publishers and students. I have taught maths in Primary schools, planning and developing the maths curriculum.


I have always had an eye for accuracy and have read through documentation all of my career in education.
