About me

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've been sharing resources through TES since 2012, started MissBanks.co.uk in 2012 (which became JaggersMaths.co.uk in 2020) and started my YouTube channel in 2017. I also tweet as @JaggersMaths.

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.
