I'm originally from Stockton-on-Tees but now live in Leeds. In 2014, I qualified from the University of Durham with 1st Class Honours in Primary Education. I've been a teacher ever since, and am now an Assistant Headteacher at the primary campus of a fabulous all-through school in Leeds.
In 2020, I completed a MSc in Learning and Teaching at the University of Oxford. My final research project involved an in-depth study of teacher expectations and their relationship with pupil expectations and achievement. I am always interested in improving my practice in order to provide better experiences for pupils.
At school, I am a Year 6 class teacher as well as enjoying responsibility for the curriculum. I lead a team of awesome subject leaders and feel incredibly privileged to do so. I am currently very interested in developing a knowledge-rich curriculum which enables all pupils to achieve or exceed their potential. For me, this encompasses the whole package we offer to children.
Outside of school, I'm a massive languages-nerd. I speak French (B2), Spanish (B1), Italian (B2) and am currently learning German (A2). I love travelling, cooking, history, productivity, running and of course, my dog, my friends and my family.
If you'd like to get in touch to discuss anything then I'd be delighted to hear from you.
