I am thrilled to be now located in the South West region, supporting teachers. There is a great level of satisfaction to be had from seeing teachers feeling confident in their skills and subject knowledge and to see this translate into the classroom, where pupils then come alive and can see the relevance of what they are learning. I am also interested in cross curricular links between Computing/Computer Science and other subjects as I feel this really re-enforces pupil understanding. I look forward to meeting and work with all teaching staff as I cover the South West region. Do let me know about "good news stories" so that these can be promoted in the regional newsletter.
