Christine taught history in state secondary comprehensive schools for ten years and for three years was deputy headteacher in a comprehensive school in Bristol, UK. In 1997 Christine was appointed by the University of Cambridge to lead its secondary school PGCE history teacher-training course. She acted as a consultant at UK national policy level for the review of the National Curriculum for History in England in 1994 and 2007. She will strengthen and enrich our work with History education enormously. Welcome Christine!
