I studied both my Physics degree and PGCE at Durham University. After teaching in a variety of schools in north-east England, including Barnard Castle School and, most recently, St Leonard’s in Durham, now I mostly work writing physics textbooks for school.
Plus some examining, and schools advisory work, for the AQA exam board. Oh, and the British Council in France regularly have me over for Astronomy workshops in French schools.
Then there’s training of teachers, both trainees on their PGCE course, and CPD for working teachers. This includes using some awesome teaching resources from Canada’s Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics.
And I’m the inventor of the Best Fit Line Ruler so I have a small business making and selling those. Find out about the lightbulb moment when the idea came to me in this interview for the Pearson International Schools Community website
