Teacher Education

I am a Senior Lecturer in Primary Education and part of the Primary Maths Team.


I joined the Primary Education Team in October 2013, having enjoyed a rewarding career as a primary school teacher and Deputy Head. My strength lies in primary maths, but I teach a range of aspects of the courses as well as being a personal tutor and dissertation supervisor. I also support students on placement in schools. The best part of my job is working alongside students and helping them develop into professionals who share my enthusiasm for learning and teaching and who are well-placed to make a great contribution to children’s learning and development in schools in the future.
