Biography - Cara Christie

Cara Christie

BSc (Hons), BEd, MA

I've been teaching in the UK for over 6 years in primary school settings, specialising in maths education in the classroom as well as working with gifted and talented maths students. Prior to this I spent many years in Australia working with children and adolescents in child protection and juvenile justice systems. Teaching has taught me that children are inherently interested in the world around them and that the most important part of education and teaching is to make it interesting, creative and relevant to everyday life. That's when children choose to learn and are excited about learning, rather than just being taught.
