I am a passionate business and economics teacher who tries to approach teaching from an interactive style. At times I feel that business and economics can seem a little dry for students and as such they struggle, my resources are designed to spark engagement and make the dull interesting. I am also a member of SLT whole school responsibility for teaching and learning and as such I create lots of different activities and documents that are useful for cross curricular working.
