About Me

Hi! I'm Emma and I'm a 28 year old maths enthusiast who teaches maths in an outstanding inner-city secondary school.

During my training year I started a blog to reflect on my journey to becoming a maths teacher. I wrote about my personal and professional development, my experiences, and my emotions. I also wrote about maths. I discovered that whilst I had thought my favourite thing in the world was maths, it turned out my favourite thing in the world is writing about maths. The best bit is discussing the topics with my students and with my faculty to get lots of good material.

I am now in my seventh year of teaching, and I still have a lot to say!

  1. Hi!
    This is Allegro, the guy who made your crane necklace!
    Just wanted to say how cool it was to find your blog post about it. This is probably the best part of my job, seeing happy customers.
    Do you ever use origami in your math lessons?

  2. Wow it's so weird that you found this! I have used origami a lot in my maths lessons, it teaches a lot about shape, symmetry,and transformations. Modular origami is particularly good because the result is a 3-D shape that the students can explore. I absolutely love my necklace, and everyone who sees it comments on how beautiful it is. So thank you!
