After completing my own Teacher Training here, I had a very successful teaching career within local schools, mostly teaching in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1. During this time, I undertook a range of consultancy work for the Local Authority, focusing on English and on Key Stage 1 assessment. I am passionate about my role in training the next generation of teachers, lecturing mainly in English and Professional Studies.
