Area of Specialism: Early Years, Initial teacher training (ITT) and newly qualified teacher (NQT) development.
I have been a primary school teacher for over 20 years and am a specialist within the Early Years Foundation Stage having gained ‘Early Years Teacher Status’.
I have been proactive in developing local networks of Early Years professionals and have worked closely with nurseries and a range of schools; sharing skills and encouraging collaboration has driven innovation and improvement within the local area. I hope to inspire positive change through an active, team based approach where goals are shared between school staff, parents and children.
My personal interests lie in improving outcomes for children through developing exciting learning opportunities and a challenging learning environment.
