Biography

I originally did a degree in Maths and have taught Maths for the past 25 years. Approximately 13 years ago I realised that more and more of my time in School involved using a computer, and following on from an interest in programming I went back to university (in the evenings) to complete a Degree in Computing, graduating with a First Class Honours Degree in 2009. I have recently moved on from the role of Computing Coordinator at Holy Family College in Heywood. I contribute to the GeoCraft Project (http://www.geocraft.org.uk/) working on programming resources using Minecraft and Python on the Raspberry Pi, and work with a variety of Universities in the North West. I am a CAS Master Teacher and am helping coordinate the activities of some of the local Master Teachers on behalf of the Manchester CRC.
