I have been teaching for over 13 years, 8 years of which have been in Redbridge, East London. As the ICT coordinator in Cleveland Junior School I had the privilege of being a part of the Redbridge Games Network and alongside other schools used games to enhance the curriculum. With the RGN I presented work at BETT, Teachmeets and various other meetings.
After getting married in 2011, my wife and I decided that a change was as good as the rest so we moved to Phnom Penh, Cambodia. I was the ICT Specialist at iCAN International British School. The school had never had an ICT Specialist before so creating a complete curriculum for year 1 to 9 was a challenging but rewarding experience. I enjoyed being given free rein to bring fun and innovative learning to the school and loved seeing the children being creative and using software to enhance their learning.
My wife and I moved back to England in the Summer of 2013. After teaching in London for a further two years we decided to finally live the good life and move to the countryside with our baby daughter.
I work in Kent in a wonderful school and as well as being a year 4 class teacher I am the Future Technologies specialist, a role that allows me to experiment with exciting and innovative technologies.
