She particularly enjoys watching her pupils progress from novices to experts in computer programming, as they develop their resilience and problem-solving skills.
Mrs Griffiths takes a particular interest in helping KS3 pupils grasp a firm understanding of programming basics so that they are able to use this knowledge and apply it to advanced programming techniques further on in their education. She is a technology enthusiast and enjoys looking at how computers can enhance the world we live in. This is an important theme covered in the computer hardware unit of work.
