Following 12 years teaching at primary schools in the Worthing area, Caroline enjoyed 17+ years working with students training to be teachers here at the University of Chichester, sharing her passion for primary mathematics.
Since leaving at the end of December 2018 she briefly taught children in the secondary phase before taking a post at the Weald and Downland Living Museum. Here she coordinated schools’ visits to the museum (when the pandemic allowed!) and thoroughly enjoyed working with the visiting children and an extensive team of amazingly dedicated volunteers.
She is now undertaking part-time maths tutoring in one of the University’s partnership schools as part of the Covid catch-up scheme.
Caroline previously held membership of The Higher Education Academy; The Association of Teachers of Mathematics; and The British Society for Research into the Learning of Mathematics.
She has also been an Authority Governor for Lavant Church of England Primary school (since 2011) and undertaken various External Examiner roles whilst working for the University of Chichester.
