I currently teach RS, Philosophy and Critical Thinking in a sixth form college where I have been since 2011 when I started as an NQT. I have always tried to create new activities, avoiding textbooks, to get students engaged in learning. I did a secondary PGCE where I taught religious studies in two secondary schools. Though I am a relatively new teacher, I coach others at my college and have achieved outstanding ratings in many of my own lesson observations.
