Teacher of Art and Design
Biggar High School
I am passionate about Art and Design and strive to engender this passion in those I teach. By adopting a variety of teaching methods and using differentiated resources, I challenge and inspire all learners whilst aiming to deliver the experiences and outcomes laid out in Curriculum for Excellence. I am experienced at developing and delivering the curriculum for both National and Higher qualifications. Assessing, recording and reporting are an integral part of my practice and I adopt a variety of Assessment is for Learning strategies to confirm pupils are achieving the desired learning outcomes and are prepared for examination. I take responsibility for all pupils in my care, providing guidance on their educational needs and also highlighting any concerns for their welfare to the appropriate staff or agency. My participation in IDL and extra curricular activities help promote skills for learning, life and work whilst developing relationships with pupils, teachers, parents and other outside agencies.
