In September 2011, I joined The University of Reading, Institute of Education. Prior to this I worked in Primary schools, where I taught for fourteen years. My experience in a range of roles in Schools has included teaching in the Early Years, Key Stages 1, 2 3. Additionally, I have had wider school leadership responsibilities as: Special Education Needs Co-ordinator (SENCO), Mathematics Co-ordinator, Assessment Co-ordinator, Advanced Skills Teacher, Assistant Head teacher and Deputy Head teacher. It has been an absolute privilege working in very diverse schools, mainly in urban settings. The bulk of my teaching experiences have been in London, UK. I have also worked at the British International School (BIS) in Jakarta, Indonesia. I led the teaching and learning of mathematics during my time at BIS. At the University of Reading, I am the Director of the BA Education (QTS) programme and I also work with our trainee teachers to develop their teaching and learning of mathematics in Primary Schools.
