Secondary Citizenship

I have an MSc in Teaching and Learning from Oxford University, where I also completed my PGCE in RE and Citizenship. I have been teaching both these subjects since 2010 and became passionate about building a department which values both RE and Citizenship. I accomplished this in  in 2015 and am now Subject Lead of Citizenship, Religion, Philosophy, Ethics and PSHE at a secondary school in Kent where all students take GCSE in both Citizenship and RE. I enjoy the challenge of discussing important issues which impact all our lives with my students. Outside the classroom I enjoy the great outdoors, running, baking and spending time with my family.

EYFS & Primary Maths

Hello friends, I’m Miss Molnar! I am currently a Maths Specialist teacher at a primary school in Woolwich. I have been teaching for eight years now and I couldn’t imagine doing anything else! I love working with children and I am passionate about maths. I support teaching and learning in maths across my partnership as well as locally as a Mastery Specialist. The most rewarding experience I’ve had so far in my career was having the opportunity to visit Shanghai to observe Mastery teaching in action!

Secondary Geography

I am a geography teacher at a secondary school in Dorset. Since working at this school I have taught across both Key Stage 3 and 4. My favourite part of my job is being able to link the learning that happens in the classroom with the spectacular coastal landscape found in the surrounding area, and of course, sharing my fascination with the natural world with children!

I am in my eighth year of teaching English and am currently in charge of Teaching and Learning in a secondary school in Suffolk. I love getting involved with extra curricular opportunities, including running the Extended Project Qualification and the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

Secondary Maths

I am currently the Deputy Head of Maths in a secondary school in West London. My favourite part about teaching maths is when my students get that ’’eureka’’ moment and enjoyment from finding a solution, where I can see their confidence in my subject grow! When I’m not teaching I love to sing in my a cappella group and play netball.

Primary Design & Technology

Hello! My name is Miss Larham and I am currently an assistant headteacher and SENCO from a small primary school in Bedfordshire. I am very lucky that I get to teach Design & Technology to all the classes in my school. D&T is my favourite subject as we get to learn lots of practical skills and help to solve real life, challenging problems. Outside of teaching I love to spend time with my family, and I enjoy walking through woodlands and along the beach.
