Elizabeth Shipman
Teacher of Geography

Lizzie is passionate about exploring the world we live in and loves sharing this enthusiasm with her students through geography. Although her background is in physical geography and engineering, she loves teaching about how the human and physical worlds link together through big issues like climate change, development and globalisation. Lizzie began teaching online as it allowed her to teach smaller classes where she had the chance to focus on topics students are interested in. From a geography perspective, Lizzie found that teaching students online from around the world is brilliant, as the class gets to use their different locations and experiences to help with their learning.

Lizzie loves to travel, particularly by train, as it allows her to always experience something new and meet different people. In her spare time, Lizzie runs an eco-group, as she is passionate about reducing human impacts on the planet. She is also an avid baker, always offering something she has made to her guests. Keep an eye out for her on any future Great British Bake off series!
