Secondary Chemistry, Combined Science

I am currently teaching science in a school in Salford. I love science, especially chemistry. I have been teaching for 17 years and teaching isn’t just a job for me, I love it and I wouldn’t do anything else. I love the interaction with students and how everyday is different. When I’m not teaching I love to cook for my family and enjoy reading a good book.

I am a head of science at a school in Stockport. I have been teaching science for 14 years, specialising in chemistry. I enjoy a ’good’ science joke, one of my favourites is ’’I heard oxygen and magnesium were going out, I was like O Mg!’’. Away from the classroom I’m a big football fan. I coach my son’s team and still try and play a bit myself.

I’m a Head of Science and KS4 subject lead at a school in London. I studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Nottingham as I’ve always been interested in the manufacturing of makeup products and I have a PhD in the synthesis of high-value biodegradable polymers using microwaves. I worked at one of the world’s largest cosmetics companies before becoming a Science teacher and my favourite part of my job is sharing my experience in industry with students and inspiring students to pursue a career in STEM. When I’m not teaching, I enjoy playing the guitar, baking and gardening.

Primary Combined Science

I am currently an EYFS SEN teacher for a new cohort of children that joined our school in the Autumn Term. Since working within a Special School, I have worked with children between the ages of 4 - 12 years old with different needs (ASD and moderate learning difficulties.) My favourite part of my job is interactions with children and seeing progress specifically with communication and how much this can change a child’s life.

I am currently the Head of Science at Sheffield Springs Academy, working with students aged 11-16. My favourite part of my job is the interactions with students, and helping to inspire and motivate them to succeed in both science, and across the school.

Secondary Biology, Combined Science

I am currently a head of science of a school located in London. I studied at the University for Hong Kong and then I pursued a Master’s degree at the University of Exeter. I moved to the UK six years ago and I have been teaching for five years now. I enjoy every minute of teaching and becoming a teacher is the best decision I have ever made. When I am not teaching, I enjoy going to the gym, photography and propagating succulents. I have so many succulent plants that I have lost count!
