Curriculum Leader for mathematics | Steph Kirk
As we start recruiting our Dream Team of teachers and support staff to TAB, I will be asking each of them to introduce themselves and to tell you a little bit about their background and interests. Only the most dedicated, hardworking, and talented individuals will be hired at our school. Very soon they will be familiar faces to you around our brand-new building.
I am delighted to inform you that we have already appointed our Curriculum Leader for mathematics, Steph Kirk. As the third member of #TeamTrinity, Steph is an excellent addition to the team and brings a wealth of specialist experience and knowledge to the role. Here’s what Steph has to say about her appointment.
I am extremely excited to be starting my role as Curriculum Leader of mathematics at Trinity Academy St Edward’s. I started my career in Barnsley and therefore I’m really looking forward to being back teaching in the area.
I’ve worked for Trinity MAT for five years, teaching at Trinity Academy Cathedral in Wakefield as well as working for both White Rose Maths and West Yorkshire Maths Hub. Throughout these five years, I have helped shape the White Rose Maths Primary and Secondary schemes of learning, delivered CPD to many teachers across the world, led a fantastic group of Mastery Specialists, and completed consultancy work as a Specialist Leader of Education (SLE) for Trinity Teaching School. I am extremely lucky to have had these experiences and to have worked with so many inspirational teachers.
I have a deep passion for mathematics and love to see my pupils having those ‘light bulb’ moments when something clicks into place. I love walking and spending time outdoors with my dog and family. When we can travel, I love visiting new places and seeking adventures. I grew up playing basketball and competed throughout University. I would love to share this hobby with the pupils at TAB and you never know, we could have an amazing team by this time next year.
