I have a wide experience of teaching science in secondary schools in London. I became a Senior Lecturer in Primary Science at Kingston University in early 2017. I am currently Route Leader for the PGCE course in secondary science. I am also a seminar leader and lecturer on the Perspectives on Policy, Practice and Professionalism course, as well module leader and lecturer for the Year 2 science specialists on the BA Primary Teaching course.
Senior Lecturer in Science Education
I am currently conducting research into the delivery of science education in primary schools, which will form my dissertation for my Masters in Research at Kingston University.
