History Subject Tutor
Katie qualified in 2004 with a PGCE from Nottingham University. Katie knew she wanted to be a History teacher since she was in year 10 - her GCSE History teacher was so enthusiastic and gave his time to help her boost her grades that she was inspired to do the same. Katie spent her year out after university teaching English at a small secondary school in Mexico. This experience combined with her school experience in England reinforced that working with young people was what she wanted from her career. Having been a teacher for 14 years Katie has developed a wide area of interest in all aspects of the past and has spent the last few years looking to expand her subject knowledge. Currently teaching History at Weydon School, Katie is also an A Level examiner and a GCSE examiner for the new Eduqas specification - a great opportunity to look at how the mark scheme is applied and the process of how students are awarded grades.
