Hi, I'm an award winning secondary Computing & ICT Teacher, Author & YouTuber, currently leading the education mission for the Raspberry Pi Foundation. I'm also the host of a Computer Science series on popular educational YouTube channel Crash Course.

I am the author of 'Adventures in Raspberry Pi' a computing book for teenagers wanting to get started with Raspberry Pi and programming. Winner of Teach Secondary magazine's Technology & Innovation Best Author award 2014.

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 Chair of the Computing At Schools initiative to get more girls and minority groups into computing called CAS #include and have helped organise workshop based hack days for adults and children concentrating on delivering good content to include all 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 which resulted in becoming a Skype Moment Maker and ambassador for technology in 2014.

I'm an evangelist for my subject, and often speak at national and international conferences like Euro Python, BETT, and
