Hi there, my name is Jon and I am an educator, tinkerer and outdoor enthusiast based in England.
From an early age, I have had a passion for the outdoors. During school, I was able to combine this with my love of competition by taking part in many open sailing events. I continued to sail at university leading the sailing team at national events.
After graduating with a degree in Engineering, I spent the next half-decade working in the outdoor industry, where risk management and teamwork were key to successful sessions. It was there that I developed a passion for educating children. I used my experiences leading and supporting groups of all ages and backgrounds to retrain as a teacher.
Since then I have worked in schools of different sizes and dynamics. My current role, alongside my class teaching, involves supporting schools to innovate and develop their use of technologies to better support classroom teaching.
- Maths/ICT Lead
- Delivered training on uses of ICT that are now applied daily in the schools where I have worked.
- Challenged the way risk taking is approached and developed training and strategies that teachers have used when delivering OAA sessions
