Emma has been teaching maths for a LONG time. She originally trained to be a lawyer, but the lure of the beauty of mathematics proved too strong! Maths was always her first love, and she is over the moon to be able to teach mathematics every day.
Emma works in an FE/HE College in Northern Lincolnshire where she teaches maths and PGCE students. Previously, she worked in an Inner London Secondary, was Head of Maths at an 11-16 school in Grimsby and coordinated GCSE and Functional Skills maths at a sixth form college. Emma is a “credible specialist” for Pearson/Edexcel, specialising in Post-16 mathematics, delivering CPD across the country (and the world!).
Emma specialises in motivation; in ensuring that students have belief and confidence in their abilities. She infects her fellow teachers with that confidence, and shows her students that it's good to be a geek!
Emma wants to spread the "Maths Love", and help everyone that she can - teachers and students alike.
Away from teaching, Emma has two growing (too fast) children, an "English specialist" husband and three dogs. She ADORES Doctor Who, science fiction, and really good coffee.
She has a column published in Chalkdust magazine, and writes for other sources, like the NCETM, too.
Her new project is #MathsMatters - a campaign to show the world that maths is intrinsic to everyone's lives...
