Welcome to my ICT showcase website
I have just completed my Primary PGCE at The University of Manchester, following a career in Marketing. I hope to build upon the skills that I gained during my PGCE and my professional career in order to make a valuable contribution to life in school as a teacher.
The aim of this website was to showcase my skills with ICT, however I have also included information on my Placements and a Diary illustrating my learning journey to become a primary teacher.
On the course I chose a Literacy specialism as I believe that children need a rich cultural environment to help develop confident reading, writing and speaking skills.
“The best children’s books help us to understand the world around us, give us comfort, challenge our views and take us on incredible adventures. Today’s children, more than any other generation before them, can borrow, own or download the widest range of wonderful stories to suit every taste and interest”.
