I have been a science teacher for 40 years. My degree was in Geological Sciences - my initial interest stemming for my enthusiasm for field work and the outdoors in general. I have taught senior Physics, Earth & Space Science, Biology and PE - all underpinned by a field based approach. I have been HoD Science in a number of schools and Deputy Principal at Te Aratika Academy, Edgecumbe College and Mundella Community College in the UK. I have been the Principal of an Alternative School (Ama School) and been an overseas volunteer in Mocambique. Currently I am employed as a Ministry of Education PLD Facilitator (Accreditation Number: ACC1342)View all of fieldbasedstem's posts.
