With over 10 years of Mathematics teaching experience, Sharon has worked with schools at different stages of their improvement journey as a Specialist Leader of Education, Lead Practitioner, Head of Mathematics and now as an Education Consultant.
Sharon provides strategic support to schools which includes analysis of current and historical data to identify strengths and deficits in teaching skills. These data analyses support quality assurance of curriculum content for different classes. She also conducts classroom observations, and provides feedback on lessons to model how this can be done: this service is usually requested for middle leaders new to their role. Sharon has also provided coaching and mentoring to Initial Teacher Trainees, Newly/Recently Qualified Teachers and experienced teachers needing to improve their practice.
Sharon has current experience of educational research and this, in conjunction with a school’s context and understanding of student needs, has enabled her to produce evidence-based solutions for improvement.
As an enthusiastic educator with a personable approach, Sharon takes a hands-on approach when necessary to support students who find Mathematics challenging as well as those that require motivation and deliberate practice to fulfil their academic goals.
With a keen interest in learning and professional development, Sharon continues to expand her knowledge through study;
