2019 Teacher Trailblazers
Gagandeep has taught English in Birmingham and West London and is Head of English in Ark Pioneer in September 2019. Gagandeep enjoys writing poetry herself and designed a poetry writing unit at her previous school, Greenford High School. Gagandeep thinks it is such a pure way for students to express themselves and play with words and tries to encourage students to enter poetry competitions wherever possible so they have a purpose for perfecting their poetry skills and gain a sense of pride in their work.
Check out Gagandeep’s lesson plan using Em Power’s Foyle Young Poet winning poem, God in 80s Movies.
