BA Hons QTS Education and Advanced Early Years.
I have taught children across the Primary age range and have worked in a range of settings from Children's Centres to large inner city schools. I have worked as a Senior Leader in Primary schools for the past 13 years and have also worked for the Local Authority as an Early Years Moderator and supported teachers with their Early Years practice through school to school support.
Alongside leading Early Years I have had the opportunity to lead inclusion across two different UK schools, leading teams of learning mentors, behaviour mentors, family support and SENDCo's. I have a real passion for children enjoying learning and I have an interest in English as a subject, I had the opportunity to lead English across Primary for several years before specialising in Phonics and training as a Phonics Trainer for the local Authority. This enabled me to develop Phonics throughout primary and support other schools and teachers with their delivery of phonics.
When I am not working I enjoy travel and the opportunity to explore different countries and cultures. I have lived and worked abroad before in the Caribbean and in Africa as well as travelling in Europe with my Family. When I am at home I enjoy reading, cooking and entertaining.
