Hi, I'm an award winning secondary Computing & ICT Teacher and now Education Pioneer at the Raspberry Pi Foundation

I am the author of 'Adventures in Raspberry Pi' a computing book for teenagers wanting to get started with Raspberry Pi and programming.

I am the creator of a YouTube video series for teenage girls called The Geek Gurl Diaries, which has won a Talk Talk Digital Hero Award. The episodes include interviews with women working in technology and hands on computer science based tutorials.

I am vice chair of the Computing At Schools initiative to get more girls and minority groups into computing called CAS #include and have helped organise #define, a workshop based hack day for teenagers concentrating on delivering good content to include all and 'Hack the Curric' bringing academics, educators and industry experts together to create inclusive resources for the new Computing curriculum.

In 2012 I became a Google Certified Teacher and KS3 ICT subject Leader at a school in East London. I have a blended and open approach to teaching as can be seen by my website ICT with Miss P that students use to access their weekly lessons. I use innovative web tools to help support and extend the learning in my 21st century classroom.

In 2014 I became a Skype Moment Maker and ambassador for technology.

I'm an evangelist for my subject, and often speak at conferences like BETT, Raspberry Jamboree, YRS and PyconUK.
