Education comments: 
As a teacher I aim to excite, broaden and challenge young minds on a daily basis. My passion for English began at an early age and I excelled in the subject throughout my academic career. In this time I studied a wide range of British and American literature, film and media. Throughout my career I have had a range of focuses including drama, being quick to see the benefits of incorporating drama techniques into my lessons and schemes of work. Through teaching English in a variety of educational settings, I have gained extensive knowledge of the IGCSE Curriculum. During my PGCE, I have taught English Language, Literature and Drama at Key Stages 3, 4 and 5. I have taught both mixed-ability and set classes, and within those a number of different abilities; I have experience of Key Stage 4 both with the D-C and A-A* borderlines. In the last academic year my class achieved: • 70 % A-C grades in English Language • 80 % A-C grades in English Literature. • 20 % of pupils achieved four or more levels of progress in both Literature and Language. • 63% of both Literature and Language pupils who achieved A-C grades were pupil premium.
