Profile summary

I have been working at Christ Church since 2012, initially seconded on a part-time basis from school, before taking on a permanent position in 2015. I teach on a range of undergraduate and postgraduate modules, predominantly on Primary Mathematics. I am also the Partnership Area Lead for Dover, Folkestone and Hythe.

I have spent seventeen years as a class teacher in a range of primary schools in Hampshire and Kent. I am a Specialist Maths Teacher and have been involved in a number of projects in Kent primary schools to strengthen the learning and teaching of mathematics.

Research and knowledge exchange

I am currently a member of the Firefly research project team which has been awarded Seed Corn Funding to evaluate the CCCU School of Teacher Education's approach to mentor and link tutor development. The team presented the first phase of this research project at TEAN (2018).

I am joint-authoring two chapters of a book on mentoring trainee and newly qualified primary school teachers for publication in 2020; one chapter is about partnerships in mentoring and the other is based around issues within mentoring trainee teachers of primary mathematics.

External activities

I am an LEA governor for a local primary school.
