Senior Lecturer in Primary Education
I recently joined the University as a Senior Lecturer in Primary Education. I studied for a PGCE in 2009, followed by a Master's degree in Education.
I have been fortunate enough to work in some brilliant schools across the region in various capacities. Although I have primarily taught in Key Stage 2 (seven years in Year 6), through my experiences as a school leader, I have knowledge of the whole primary curriculum, including Early Years.
During my 11 year teaching career, I have been English lead, Key Stage 2 lead and was an Assistant Headteacher for five years. One part of the job I loved was being able to mentor trainee teachers and newly qualified teachers (NQTs) within schools, helping them to develop and grow into the profession. I am deeply passionate about English, particularly the promotion and development of reading in schools.
I look forward to being able to use my experience in school to help support and enable trainees to become confident, well-equipped teachers, ready to embark on a wonderfully rewarding career.
