Which subject(s) do you teach?
I have recently retired from a Science College in Hertfordshire where I taught all sciences up to GCSE (OCR applied and additional science and geology) and A-level Chemistry and Geology (Both OCR).

My original degree is in Applied Biology (Biochemistry with physiology and pharmacology, Upper Second, 1982) which I completed when employed as a research scientist for a large pharmaceutical company. I completed my PGCE in 1986 prior to gaining a full time teaching appointment in a school. I have recently completed a open degree in physical sciences with the Open university which covers physics, organic and physical chemistry and earth sciences.

I worked as a research biochemist for about 10 years until starting a family. When my children were young I worked part time in a college of further education.
