I am really pleased that you have visited my website and hope that you find everything that you need to on it.
So, a bit about me - I am a teacher who is passionate about giving children the very best learning experiences that I can. I have had a breadth of experience – from class teacher to school leader but am happiest when I am teaching children. I am currently a class teacher and a Primary Evidence Lead Educator for a local research school. In June 2020, I was made a Fellow by the Chartered College of Teaching - an achievement that I am very proud of.
I believe strongly in equity for all and empowering others. We all have a voice but only by listening to each other and working together can we make a difference. I really do believe that together we can change the future for our children and the future generations. Due to believing in the power of collaboration, I created #TinyVoiceTuesdayUnites on Twitter specifically for educators to find their voice and connect with others. This has now grown and alongside educators are authors, illustrators and others who impact on the children in our classrooms. If you haven't found us yet, then just find my pinned tweet every Tuesday.
I love to write and began a blog in January 2020 - Teaching Others and Learning All the Time, many of the posts that I have written are now on this website too (under the blog page). I found writing a wonderful outlet and due to this, I hosted blogging webinars to support others in starting their own educational blog. I am so pleased that there are so many wonderful educational blogs out there now!
I started a podcast in August 2020 'Tiny Voice Talks' as another way to get smaller voices heard and have interviewed some wonderful people for the show. For all the episodes, click on my podcast page. It is on Apple Podcasts and Spotify too!
When I am not doing all of the above, you will find me out walking, watching great films with my husband or learning about the world from my teenage daughter!
Educators for Anti-Racism and Equity
I am part of the steering group for educators for anti-racism and equity. We are a group of diverse educators from different subsections of the Education sector who believe we are stronger together and that education has the key to empower.
