As a Maths and Science teacher and school timetabler, Moira appreciated the need for good timetabling software. In her two decades of timetabling experience, Moira has worked with a number of different timetabling products and understands their strengths and weaknesses. For the last 10 years she has worked in the Education Technology industry, initially with Edval Timetables and more recently with Compass.
