About Me
I taught for twenty-odd years in several socio-economically deprived schools in the West Midlands (of the UK); working across the age range from early years to year 6. Discovering MS Excel led me to develop interactive resources which I shared through Gareth Pitchford's superb Primary Resources website ; and then to set up my own FREE resource site.
In 1999 an educational publisher invited me to write for them. Shortly afterwards I left class-based teaching roles to work in local authority support teams, firstly as a Behaviour and Reintegration advisory teacher, and then supporting Looked After Children through IT provision, learning projects and 1-to-1 mentoring and teaching.
My first four books (Maths Express)being published in January 2000.
In September 2011 yet another cost-cutting inspired "restructuring" gave me the opportunity to early retire to spend more time with my first grandchild. He's been joined since by twin brothers so our life of "retirement" is busy and fun-filled!

I welcome feedback and suggestions, and try to answer queries by return of email. Although I no longer teach it's great to be one of the many who freely share their resources with teachers in the UK and beyond. Email feedback or queries.
