Hi, my name is Avis Mastin. I'm originally from Sunderland and went to Leeds University where I studied on a BSc (Hons) in Agricultural Zoology.

I then went to the University of York where I researched into the disease Schistosomiasis (also known as Bilharzia). After completing my PhD I trained to be a teacher at the College of Ripon and York, St John.

My first teaching post was in Gweru, Zimbabwe, where I taught A Level Biology and O Level Science. On my return to the UK I taught A Level Biology and Human Biology at Colchester Sixth Form College for several years.

I've spent the last few years in New Zealand and am happy to finally be back and teaching in my native North East.
