About

I have taught for 20 years and I am head of history and politics at a private boarding school. I love reading about and discussing pedagogy. I now know more than I will ever need to about phonics and I use the Direct Instruction materials of Siegfried Englemann to help my own children with their maths.  I have discovered that I have quite strong views on examining, assessment, the role of knowledge in developing skills and much else!
