About Emma Andrew
Emma Andrew has been a teacher for over ten years in primary schools in Edinburgh, Midlothian and the Scottish Borders. She is now a teacher in East Lothian. Although most of this time has been spent as a class teacher across the range of stages, Emma has also been a peripatetic literacy and numeracy support teacher and a Curriculum Support Teacher, focusing on French and literacy. A life before teaching involved working in charity fundraising and marketing. Emma’s interest in professional enquiry, teacher agency and leadership has led to presenting at, and organising, enquiry and TeachMeet events in schools and universities. Her own experience of professional enquiry has encouraged her to seek more opportunities to share practice and make links with other teachers.
Emma has a Masters in Education in Children’s Literature and Literacies from the University of Glasgow. She has given feedback on BBC Scotland’s online literacy material, and had input into the book list for the First Minister’s Reading Challenge.
