Studying for a PhD in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Sheffield, Alice became heavily involved in the university outreach program. As a result of these experiences, she completed a PGCE in Secondary Science at the University of Nottingham and began teaching in 2012. Since then she has progressed to the Head of Biology at an independent school in Bristol, teaching all three sciences to GCSE, coordinating science teaching in the Junior School and specialising in A level Biology. Her educational passion is teaching and learning and is constantly on the look-out for novel ways to improve her practice. Outside of the classroom she works as a freelance educational resource author. She is also an active member of a local LGBT family group and there is nothing she loves more than spending time with her wife and their two young children.
