As a highly educated, experienced and leading English teacher having completed my BA Honors in English language and literature, TEFL and PGCE at The Manchester Metropolitan University, I have a demonstrated history of working successfully in a range of secondary schools. I have taught both English language and literature at KS3 and KS4, teaching the AQA GCSE Specification. My roles have consisted of planning, preparing and delivering lessons to students of all levels and abilities, curriculum designing such as syllabuses, schemes of work and lesson plans.

I was also responsible for managing pupil behaviour in the classroom and on school premises, and applying appropriate and effective measures in cases of misbehaviour in accordance with the schools policy.
I undertook numerous pastoral duties, such as taking on the role of form tutor, and supporting pupils on an individual basis through academic or personal difficulties; communicating with parents and carers over pupils'progress and participating in departmental meetings, parents' evenings and whole school training events.
My personal development continued through liaising with other professionals, such as learning mentors, heads of departments and members of senior leader teams, educational psychologists and education welfare officers. I also had to undergo regular observations, book scrutinies, learning walks all in which I have received the rating of ‘Outstanding Teaching and Learning’. I have regularly participated in in-service training (INSET) and numerous out of school training as part of continuing professional development.
I was also privileged to be given the responsibility for the mentoring, assessing and the guidance of trainee teachers within our department.
Administration roles have consisted of report, document and summary writing on students and trainee teachers, recording and monitoring pupil progress, examination results, identifying through data and intervening with underachievers accordingly.
I have also managed and monitored student registers, attendance, and had to frequently present data, numbers, percentages and new ideas and concepts at departmental, pastoral, Head of Year meetings, Assistant Heads Teachers and the Head Teacher.

Whilst at University, I was offered the opportunity to write and edit for one of the popular campus magazines. My role consisted of spending numerous hours a day writing and editing articles written by myself as well as the work of others before publishing.
