Personal profile

Biography

I joined Huddersfield University in 2014 as a Senior Lecturer in Primary Education, with nearly twenty five years of experience working in education. A former primary headteacher, I have worked in a range of primary schools and taught all year groups, with the majority of my teaching experience being KS1. Roles I have held include: Head of Infants, Assessment Lead, and co-ordinator for Geography, RE, PSHCE and MFL.

I have also worked at the National College for Teaching and Leadership, working on a range of projects including phonics in Initial Teacher Training and School Direct.

I spent four years in Hungary studying Conductive Education and working at the Peto Institute, mainly teaching with children with physical disabilities, and I also have experience teaching primary age children in special schools
