Bob started teaching in 1973, as a teacher of secondary French and English in Stocksbridge, near Sheffield, and was head of a French department in 1980. He soon began to develop an interest in teaching children with learning difficulties. His use of games in the classroom started with bottom set French groups, and transferred naturally to literacy and numeracy work as well as other subjects areas when, in the later 1980ís, he made a career move to SEN teaching and started working with for the SEN Support service in Gloucester and then with dyslexic students at St Peter's School, Gloucester. Since then Bob has had wide experience in different types of schools, including three years as a class teacher with severely autistic children at KS 2 and KS 3. Since founding Crossbow Education with his wife, Anne, in 1993, Bob continued to teach on a part-time basis in local schools for another ten years.
Bob and Anne are the designers of the Eye Level Reading Ruler, which is
now used by dyslexic children in over half the schools in the UK.
