Georgia trained to teach in Birmingham, where she completed the Teach First Leadership Development Programme while working in a school with high numbers of children from a low socio-economic background. She became a SEND specialist early in her career and was instrumental in developing and teaching nurture and transition groups in KS3. From attaining her BA (Hons) in Egyptology, Georgia adopts a multi-disciplinary and multi-sensory approach to teaching history. Whether it’s teaching KS2 how to mummify teddy bears, transforming her classroom into Canterbury Cathedral to investigate a thousand-year-old murder mystery with KS3, or explaining hyperinflation to GCSE students using Freddos, Georgia is always looking for engaging and creative ways to deliver her lessons.
A strong advocate of growth mindset, Georgia’s golden rule in the classroom is that ‘stupid’ is a banned word. She encourages children to embrace challenges rather than fear them, and to appreciate gaps as opportunities to grow.
In all her previous roles, Georgia has been responsible for innovating and delivering training with ICT. She has 16 years’ experience in designing and building websites, both with web building software and coding. Her responsibilities for The Levels School include developing and updating the website.
In addition to web development, Georgia’s hobbies include exploring the stunning Somerset countryside and creative writing. She is currently writing a fantasy novel for young adults, with help from her very important live-in colleague, Piper the cat.
