Event Host

Chris Green, Mangahigh
Chris_Green1.JPGMy name is Chris Green, I am 38 years old and I am a Math graduate with 15 years teaching experience in England. I taught pupils aged 11 to 18 and as well as Math, I enjoyed teaching Sports and Drama.

I left teaching about a year ago and joined Mangahigh to help create a site dedicated to making Math fun.

My main job centres on curriculum development, but I get involved in creating the games too.

I have 5 children aged between 14 and 23. I always thought it got easier as they grew older, now I'm not so sure!

When I'm not doing math I enjoy walking in the hills with my fiancee, amateur dramatics, reading history and playing rugby.
