I received the Primary Science Teacher Award in 2012; this provided access to PSTT college funding for my 2014 project Sporting Science: Cricket based at Durham International Cricket Ground. Since retiring from the classroom, a whole new world of science opportunities has opened including the role of PSTT North-East England area mentor (2015-18) and various writing projects including co-authoring a book with Rosemary Feasey, Jumpstart! Science Outdoors: Cross-Curricular Games and Activities and contributing to Royal Society of Chemistry, Science Bug International and BBC resources. Now I am a Primary Science Quality Mark senior regional hub leader supporting NE hub leaders and schools through the PSQM accreditation
It’s a privilege to be involved with PSTT and I love working with the North East College Fellows who are all amazing, inspirational teachers!
