About

I teach across the Primary Initial Teacher Education programmes with a Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and Inclusion focus. As a Partnership Development Manager, my role also includes supporting students with placement challenges relating to additional needs.

Teaching responsibilities

My role includes facilitating teaching and learning across the BEd/MEdu and PGCE Core and School Direct programmes. I focus on delivery around supporting diverse learners within the primary classroom through the use of inclusive teaching strategies and the development of practitioner knowledge of SEND.

Research interests

I am interested in the mental wellbeing of trainee teachers and the notions surrounding teacher retention rates.

Qualifications

Experience in industry

With over 20 years of experience in the Primary education sector, I have taught in many school settings ranging from small rural schools to larger inner-city settings. I have also led on SEND management as a Special Educational Needs Coordinator, a challenging yet rewarding role.

International experience

Whilst studying for my Masters in Education at Boston University, Massachusetts, I had the opportunity to teach within the American school system, gaining international insight into the challenges of Primary teaching and the provision for pupils with SEND.
