A bit about Steve
Steve Marshall is an IB enthusiast with international experience in the Seychelles, Jordan, Spain, Brazil, China, and Ethiopia. He is currently Head of the Geography and Environmental Systems and Societies (ESS) Departments at St Clare's, where he has been teaching since 2007, and delivers science and geography courses during summer school. He organises and oversees the annual residential field trip to Dorset, recently visited Iceland with a group of St Clare's students and coaches the school volleyball club as a CAS activity. He holds a BSc (Hons) in Geography and PGCE from Newcastle University (UK), taught at King Edward's, Morpeth in the North East of England for a number of years, and played volleyball at National League level, which explains his 'adopted Geordie' status and his curious support of Newcastle United.
Previous posts have included teaching Geography, Asian History, Biology, Economics and Business, Head of Economics, Head of Humanities faculty, Board Member, IBDP Coordinator and Examiner. He recently edited the new IBDP Pearson ESS course textbook and is currently editing and in charge of quality control of Kognity on-line textbooks in ESS and Geography. He also leads category 1 and 2 teacher training workshops in Geography and ESS throughout the Euro/African region for St Clare's, the IBO and other providers including IBICUS and In Thinking.
He lives locally in Marston with his wife Mej, and two young boys (Zayne and Zak), which has temporarily curtailed his wanderlust, and spends the little spare time available to him playing and watching numerous sports, with a single figure golf handicap a future target.
