Back in the distant past, I loved mathematics at school. Mostly because I found it easy. And so I ended up taking Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics as my bachelor’s degree. Not having the faintest idea what to do next, I ended up completely by accident in ICT, spending 12 years as a Software Engineer, before training to be a mathematics teacher.
After about 8 years teaching secondary school mathematics a path through Nauru, working for the Salvation Army, led me to an interest in EAL and I began my (now completed) Masters of Education (TESOL), and working as a specialist mathematics teacher in an English Language School.
I love teaching maths, but also grappling with the language of mathematics, and seeking ways to teach both at the same time.
