ePortfolio of John Thomas

Having graduated with a degree in Mathematics from the University of Liverpool and a MA in Leadership and Innovation from the University of West London, I have been a classroom teacher since 1991 and am currently head of Mathematics at a boys' grammar school in Kent as well as being a part-time EdD student at Warwick.

My research interest is in developing resilience in learning Mathematics. In particular, I'm interested in investigating the impact of high levels of challenge on students' and teachers' resilience in Mathematics and how teaching and learning can be scaffolded in order to allow all to make progress.
