 Why have you chosen to become an SLE?

I am very passionate about the teaching of Mathematics and this motivates me to lead it well and to motivate others. I am a Primary Specialist Maths Teacher (MAST) and also an NCETM Professional Development Accredited Lead. I have led whole school training in my own school and other schools as part of these roles. I have also worked with individual teachers or groups of teachers/TAs in the capacity of a mentor. I have provided a lot of training on how to use Numicon and practical resources effectively across the whole Primary age range. I have recently moved year groups from year 4, back into Foundation Stage and feel I can offer support to teachers in this area too. 

What are your areas of expertise?  How might you be able to help the schools?

•             Maths subject leadership

•             Leading Maths CPD / mentoring and coaching

•             Teaching and learning / pupil progress

•             Preparing for the new curriculum

•             Using practical resources to support understanding (including Numicon)

•             General Early Years / outdoor learning

 I would be happy to help teachers / subject leaders to develop any of these areas in their own schools.
