I have been a teacher for many years, Teaching Science and Technology at a High School in Derbyshire and then as a Primary teacher in various authorities across the North West. My degree was in Agricultural Engineering but my working experience has been mainly in education. More recently I have been helping to pastor a small church in Yorkshire as well as doing some life coaching in schools around the area. I now live in Devon. I have one wife, four children, three grandchildren and no pets.
I learned to code in my mid 50’s as a kind of hobby And it has grown to be more of a passion or obsession I’m not sure. I helped teach Computer Science at Harrogate Ladies College and ran coding classes at Harrogate Library and Barnstaple Library. All voluntary. There seem to a great hunger to understand what coding is especially from the adult population. This is what motivated me to start creating a curriculum that answered their question ‘what exactly is coding?’.
I have also helped at a Code Club and a CoderDojo club, as well as various other events and activities. So I am working on these areas of curriculum. With my latest interest in Artificial Intelligence being my main focus of learning, and it is quite a steep learning curve.
