Hi! I'm Alison Jagger and I am a maths teacher!
I graduated from University of Sheffield in 2014 with a degree in Mathematics with Employment Experience (having spent my third year working as a Maths HLTA in a Secondary school). I continued my studies in Sheffield to complete my PGDE the next year and a Master's degree in Applied Professional Studies in Education the following year (which I did part time along side my NQT year).
My first 5 years teaching were at a secondary academy in Wakefield, including 4 years as Deputy Curriculum Leader. I have recently accepted a position at another secondary academy in Wakefield as Associate Assistant Principal with a focus on teaching and learning and start at this school in September 2020.
I believe that no teacher knows it all and has nothing left to learn. I am always open to new ideas and continuously trying to improve my own practice. I enjoy creating resources (it's a hobby I do in my free time!) and love to share these with other teachers and see them being used across the wider teaching community.
In 2019 I married my high school sweetheart and boyfriend of 10 years, Jonathan. Together we have two amazing daughters; Olivia and Chelsea-Mae.
