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

Throughout my teaching career I have always believed that education is the key to prosperity and social justice. Enthusing children from an early age with a love of learning is the best possible start for children in Primary school.

What is your educational experience?

I am a former Headteacher with over 10 years’ experience and have worked with schools to support teaching & learning through school-based CPD and high quality training courses and conferences. I have taught in London, Essex and Suffolk.

What is your educational specialism?

As a MAST (Maths Specialist Teacher) and Head I have worked to promote new pedagogical approaches in maths throughout my own and neighbouring Schools. I have led on Computing, Assessment, Literacy and behaviour. More recently I have worked with the Norfolk & Suffolk Maths hub, NCETM, and Oxford University to promote Mathematical reasoning.

What do you like doing outside of work?

I enjoy running, watching football and theatre. I play the guitar at open mic nights and love walking and music on vinyl!
