Ruth graduated from teacher training college in 1992. Her dissertation was on ways to teach and model encouragement, affirmation and praise in the classroom. After three years teaching in London, Ruth moved to Cambridge where she has taught at St Matthews primary school for 23 years, mostly as a Reception teacher. Having piloted TastEd at St Matthews, Ruth is our Early Years and Key Stage 1 curriculum adviser and will also be acting as one of our roving teacher trainers to pass on the TastEd method to other teachers. She is passionate about tailoring the training to what works for an individual teacher in an individual classroom.
