Masters suc­cess for lan­guage teacher

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

A FALLIBROOME teacher has earned a dis­tinc­tion in her Masters in Ed­u­ca­tion de­gree while teach­ing full time at the school.

Claire Smith, who is head of Ger­man, com­pleted a fi­nal re­search project – which in­volved her Year 7 French class and the pri­mary feeder schools, in­ves­ti­gat­ing the tran­si­tion in lan­guages be­tween lo­cal schools.

The qual­i­fi­ca­tion was pre­sented at a cer­e­mony at Edge Hill univer­sity, which Claire at­tended with her daugh­ter Lau­ren who is in Year 7 at Fallibroome.

Claire’s hus­band Nick said: “Claire hopes that her work will in­spire other col­leagues to con­duct re­search as it is fas­ci­nat­ing, re­ward­ing and can lead to im­prove­ments in aspects of the teach­ing pro­fes­sion.”
