As a teacher, my varied career has allowed me to successfully teach children across the primary age range; lead subjects such as Science, Art, RE and PE; and develop and deliver staff training. For the past ten years I have been coaching and mentoring newly and recently qualified teachers. It gives me great delight to help colleagues to succeed by drawing on my experiences that include being a Governor and an Assistant Headteacher.
I am the author of No Winter Lasts Forever which presents a snapshot of my experiences of facing the challenges caused by multiple bereavement. Being a teacher when your personal life seems overwhelmingly hard is draining which is why I am passionate about helping teachers succeed personally and professionally.
