About

I am a Chartered History teacher with 18 years of classroom experience teaching History, Politics and Modern Studies to students aged 12-18. I hold an MA (Hons) in History from the University of Edinburgh and two postgraduate certificates: one in Secondary History teaching from the same university and a second in Educational Leadership from the University of Leicester. I also hold a Certificate in Terrorism Studies from St Andrews University. In March 2020 I was accepted as a Fellow of the College of Chartered Teachers. 

 

I am a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts (FRSA). The RSA is a global community of active problem solvers motivated by a shared set of values (open, optimistic, pioneering, rigorous and enabling).

I want to help teachers find ways to develop curiosity, creativity and courage to inspire better ways of thinking and doing among young people. My free teaching and learning resources will help to reduce education inequality, enable collaboration, foster critical and creative thinking. Take a look at my latest free education project that feeds into the UN's education strategy, Youth 2030 and the GTCS Learning for Sustainability Professional Strands. My website Hexis21 takes a deeper dive into 21st century skills and provides free educational and training resources.

I am an experienced SQA marker & Verifier and International Baccalaureate History examiner. I have written teaching materials for Historic Scotland, Learning Teaching Scotland and the National Trust for Scotland. I have also worked as a member of the NTS Education Advisory Board. 

My published books can be found here.

In my spare time enjoy millinery, writing, reading and painting.
