Liz is an experienced teacher with over 30 years’ experience. In 2002, she became an AST with primary maths transition as her focus and Liz has lead training across the primary partnership.
Liz has developed staff in a range of schools through tailored support and her lessons are frequently observed with the aim to improve teaching and learning. In her current role, she works with year six students from all seven feeder primary schools on problem solving, visiting a different school each week.
Liz runs workshops at both national and regional conferences for NCETM, the Mathematics Association (MA) and the British Congress of Mathematics Education (BCME) on problem solving and transition.
As an Ambassador for the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), Liz networks with primary and secondary colleagues. She has undertaken a funded research project for the NCETM on activity-based learning and ways to involve other colleagues in this style of teaching. Her interest in active learning resulted from being part of the pilot for the Standards Units sent out from the Department of Education called Improving Learning in Mathematics.
