Inspiring educator

Some people dream of success. I make it happen.

Your curriculum

Your curriculum is set. It might be your first year of delivering it, it might be your 20th. 

It could be you want something new to inspire the KS2 on their mountain topic. An event where you can sit back and let an enthustiac mountaineer do the talking. Have this person come into your classroom and bring it alive with real stories, expert knowledge, all from someone who from experience knows the value of education. 

For Year 11 teachers who see, year after year, young adults go to college or try their luck in the working world, I will provoke thought about ‘no excuses, your life is in your hands’, ‘live life to your own full potential’, whether that’s with fingers and toes… or not!

You want something unique to your curriculum, something that you can steer to make relevant to the coming weeks and something that is easy to organise, low maintenace and easy to get school approval.

If I have missed anything, pop it in an email and ask, I’ll always get back to you. 

My role as educator

I am someone who can bring the mountain into your classroom. With no fingers and toes and visible frostbite on my face I bring out the natural curiosity of learners, and am the person who will answer any (and every) question. 

My story is part of their learning, not just geography but how life can throw up the unexpected and what that might feel like.

After delivering my lesson plan, pupils often have a project to complete and some of the inclusions in their work I have seen over the years are:

  • an essay about life on a mountian
  • a poem written by the mountain
  • letters home to parents from Everest base camp
  • some become the artist on the mountain top 
  • others become the equipment specialists
  • some write the weather forecast for mountaineers!

After the lesson, the follow-on in your classroom can be limitless, making your role as teacher easier as you have a shared experience with the children to bring into conversation and make part of their project.

Working together

You have the curriculum and lesson plans.

I have the mountaintop experience and passion.

Where do you want your lesson focus to be?

Let me know and I’ll do the thinking for you, I’ll come armed with all the audio visual, slides, videos and bring your classroom to life in the way you want to.

If you want something more low-key then I can pitch up and deliver a lesson about my experiences. Having done this over the years, I know you and the students won’t be disappointed. 

Budgets are going to be on your mind!

Two options: the school pays from allocated budget or I can provide you with suggestions on how to spread the cost to the parents and I write the letters for you, taking the stress out of placing an order with me.

I’m an easygoing chap, you are a busy teacher under pressure. Contact me in the way which is best for you, by phone, email, or even text. I’m here to make it simple.
