I am a Teacher of Secondary School Students, who loves learning. I’m constantly trying to find new ways to “raise my game“.
Known as the “Smiley Maths Teacher”, “S.P.” and “Porter”, I do my best to stay positive at all times. I know that every child should have a role model, a dream and the opportunity to achieve their dreams and as such, I want students to have the best preparation to succeed in life. I will do all that is in my power to help them get that grade, be more confident and achieve that dream.
As Lead Practitioner for Teaching and Learning, part of my remit is to support, coach and mentor staff so that they can succeed in getting their students to be the best they can be. In my role as a Specialist Leader in Education, I’m linked to a local Teaching School. This has given me the opportunity to work with some wonderful (and sometimes challenging) students as well as some truly amazing teaching and support staff.
My aim is to inspire…it’s the little things that will make a big difference!
