Second in Mathematics, Ribblesdale High School
Emma grew up and was schooled in Blackburn before heading to Newcastle to study Food Marketing. Inspired by her work as a Girl Guider to take up teaching, she travelled a long way whilst staying in one place: teaching first Business and IT, then Business Studies, then Maths, encompassing NVQs, night school classes, and a variety of pastoral roles before settling in her current position as Second in Maths at Ribblesdale High School in Clitheroe.
Emma is passionate about providing holistic education; growing young adults who are equipped in skills, knowledge, and character to thrive in the outside world is at the core of what she does. A sceptic of innovation for its own sake, she has nevertheless become convinced of the advantages of the newly-released Learning by Questions software, and is an ambassador for its utility in enabling both students to develop their potential and teachers to teach more freely and incisively.
