What is your happy space?

Tell us a less-known fact about you.
I was a trainee officer in the Royal Navy.
How and why did you get into the teaching profession?
A fluke – a naval career wasn’t for me, so I tried a PGCE. 20-odd years later and inspiring young people to care for our world remains more crucial than ever.
What is the greatest thing about being a teacher?
The ‘Eureka!’ moments are brilliant, but really it is the day-to-day buzz of a happy classroom that makes teaching a career like no other.
What is your favourite activity/project at GIS?
Langkawi GCSE geography field trip – paradise!
