Academic Course Leader and Senior Lecturer for BEd Primary

Biography

I joined the Primary Education Team in 2012 after teaching for 20 years in primary classrooms. My varied career encompassed RE, Mathematics and PE subject leadership, in addition to senior leadership. I teach on undergraduate and postgraduate programmes, specialising in RE, a subject I believe to be vital in today's pressured and ever changing world. I also lecture in how to effectively teach primary physical education (PE).
