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

I have been working with TT Education as a consultant providing support for schools to improve learning outcomes for children. I enjoy planning and delivering training to teachers, schools and networks in a variety of settings, aiming to ignite their passion and motivation through texts and drama. I have also worked on an advanced literacy project and a Cambridge University (Cambridge International Examinations) project writing a language curriculum for Kazakhstan.

What is your educational experience?

I have broad educational experience as a teacher and manager in schools and as a learning consultant and Lead Curriculum County Adviser, leading and managing a large team of English consultants and advisor colleagues in developing excellence in learning and teaching and curriculum provision for schools. I am a nationally accredited Local Consultant for Improvement in Stronger Management Systems.

What is your educational specialism?

My subject specialism is literacy with particular interests in improving writing through reading, storytelling, visual literacy, drama and speaking and listening.

What do you like doing outside of work?

I particularly enjoy reading, film and theatre, travelling, cooking, yoga and pilates.
