I have been in education for as long as I can remember, working in both the primary and secondary phases and have been a Head Teacher of both secondary and primary schools. I enjoy and have a passion for working with and building teams of staff that can provide the very best outcomes for our students.

My work although takes me away from direct teaching of learners my motivation and passion is to now support and equipping others, embedding skills, through high quality profession development to strive for and instil in them and their students a passion for life long learning.

My professional experience is vast I have led CPD and modelled for other leader’s programmes that have impacted on the standard of teaching in their schools, facilitating teaching programmes, Middle leadership programmes and coaching at all levels of leadership.

Fundamentally the key must be to provide an approach that motivates, inspires, supports, develops and increases the capacity of an individual and a whole school in a sustainable outcome and ultimately raise educational standards of all our schools

My personal interests are: Finding the ways to give teaches the strategies to engage them and their students to enjoy learning. Spending time in my home with my family and friends and walking my dogs. Plus I love to laugh.
