I am originally from Lincolnshire and moved to the North East to complete my teacher training and loved it that much that I never left! I began my career as a secondary PE teacher and have experience of a number of leadership roles including secondary headship. I have worked in several secondary schools across the region from Teesside to Northumberland.
I am passionate about supporting the development of others whether that be students or adults and now lead one of the most successful teacher training provisions in the country helping to train the next generation of outstanding teachers.
I am privileged to be a governor at Haughton Academy and am driven to provide support and challenge so that together, we ensure students receive the very best education and have every opportunity to succeed in life.
