Could you tell me a bit about yourself and what motivates you?

I am passionate about making a difference to children's lives and committed to developing excellence in education through high quality and enriched learning experiences. I believe that all children deserve an education that drives lifelong learning and it is bringing about significant change in teaching, learning and outcomes for children that motivates me.

What is your educational experience and key qualifications?

  • BEd (Hons) in Education with a specialism in English from Homerton College Cambridge.
  • NPQML
  • NPQSL

I have several years of experience (far more than I thought!) in teaching children across the primary years and in leading English.

As a Head of Academy, and Deputy Head, I have led underperforming schools through change to develop teaching, learning and outcomes.

What are your Educational Specialisms?

I specialise in both English and Leadership and have a particular interest in building the confidence and capacity of subject and middle leaders to develop exemplary practice. Throughout my career I have built high expectations within schools to bring about significant change in teaching, learning and outcomes for children.

What do you enjoy most about working in education?

I am passionate about making a difference to children's lives and committed to developing excellence in education through high quality and enriched learning experiences. It is a privilege to be a part of developing this for children.

What do you like doing outside of work?

I thoroughly enjoy music and perform with a choir at a variety of events in the local area. I also enjoy going to the theatre and concerts along with nurturing my garden, spending time with my family and friends walking in the countryside.
