Personal profile

Scholarly biography

I have been involved in primary school education for over twenty years, starting out as a class teacher before moving into senior leadership and becoming a Headteacher of a Junior school in West Sussex. I then moved over to Initial Teacher Education, working at UCL Institute of Education as a Professional Tutor on the Teach First programme. I joined the University of Brighton in 2017 as Programme Leader of the PGCE Primary 3-7 and 5-11 courses. I teach primary mathematics to trainee teachers, having achieved an MA in Maths Education with Distinction from UCL in 2019. 

Research interests

I am particularly interested in:

  • Primary school NQTs' and trainees' experiences, especially  in mathematics
  • Mentoring and coaching

Approach to teaching

Coming from a Primary teaching background, I aim to make my teaching interactive and with resources to support understanding. I have had many years' experience teaching primary school children and bring to initial teacher education a belief in the importance of a holistic education in which the child comes first. 

As well as being Programme Leader on the PGCE Primary 3-7 and 5-11 courses, I am also a PAT, teach primary mathematics education on PGCE and undergraduate courses, and educational studies for the PGCE.
