To me, maths looks more like a modern foreign language than a science. In particular, its long formulas look absolutely bizarre to the uninitiated.
Have a look at this:
Does that make any sense to you? To me, it looks like Rorschach-ian inkblots (I see Queen Jocasta - Pyschology Teachers, please get in touch). But if your mastery of mathematics enables you to parse that gobbledygook into a common language that secondary students understand, you're halfway there.
The other half involves your ability inspire students. For this upcoming generation, a half-baked understanding of STEM subjects no longer suffices (like it clearly did for me). If you passionately believe that all students, regardless of background, deserve a shot at professional success in the future and understanding mathematics is one of the most important tools they'll need to get there, then please get in touch.
I'm working with a number of schools in South London that represent a range of exciting options for teachers. From the support of successful departments to plenty of opportunity for progression, if you want to discuss roles from September please apply.
- Preferably, a 2:1 or better Maths degree
- Experience in UK classrooms
