About me

I have been teaching for over 15 Years in the UK and New Zealand. I have been in leadership for 11 of those years across many different schools, (size, decile,  failing school and diversity). I have been a Year group leader, Department Leader,  AP and DP

I completed an MA in Education and Learning in the UK (part-time) with many papers in Early Education ( Age 3-7). 

I have a passion for igniting young children's life long learning, with children taking control and developing their independence through Lerner agency, play-based learning, foundation skills for learning. I have an in-depth knowledge of curriculum development and assessment.  

I have also been a Special Educational Needs Coordinator for 5 years, and have enjoyed this part of my role the most. I have developed a love and a natural ability to work with students who find school life 'tricky'. The knowledge I bring to this area of school makes a huge difference to students and colleagues. 

I am just lucky to love my job.
