Celebrating transformational teaching

Mario Monteforte

Casterton College

The Award for Teacher of the Year in a Secondary School

Great Casterton, Nr Peterborough

Mario is living proof that British children can do maths. Children of all abilities queue up to be taught by Mario because he inspires them with a love of Maths and makes them feel as though they are the only child in the class. His results are extraordinary, and his children make progress that Ofsted would die for. Yet he does this as though it is the most natural thing in the world and always with the most disarming modesty. Mario is loved and admired by parents and students alike and a truly wonderful example to the profession and Maths teachers everywhere.
