A bit about me…
I’m a maths teacher by day, but at various stages I have also been (or still am) a wife, a mum, a website designer, a computer programmer, a karate instructor, a singer, Batman, a cake designer, an expert on Peppa Pig & Dora the Explorer, and a Twitter addict.*
I created http://www.ilovemathsgames.com as a place where I could store all the resources I’d made in Flash, and where they could be accessed by both me, and other teachers/students etc. It kind of snowballed, and now gets over 3000 unique visitors a month!
The nicest moment was when I was talking to someone about it, and their child piped up with “We use that at school!” 😀
I believe very strongly that, as teachers, we spend WAY too much time reinventing the wheel, creating resources that already exist in some form. I hope to be able to use this blog (and the site) to share some ideas for the classroom, along with any resources.
I will share with you my successes, and sometimes even my failures (I think we learn even more from those sometimes), and hope you will be kind… 😉
*one of these may be slightly untrue….
