Sunita’s teaching career spans 17 years in a variety of roles in the secondary school setting. The experience she gained from her years as a classroom practitioner led to her role as a mathematics consultant for a local authority, which involved focusing on school improvement and developing teaching and learning in mathematics. Another key aspect of her role as a consultant was the provision of professional development both at departmental and whole school level, specialising in bespoke Inservice Training sessions. She now works at Brunel University, where she coordinates the secondary PGCert mathematics course. Sunita has always been interested in mathematics education, in particular curriculum development, transition and the development of problem solving skills in mathematics.
