I am the Head of English at a 3-18 academy in Bradford, West Yorkshire. I have worked as an AST and a Lead Practitioner, and feel very strongly about CPD, research and personalised learning for teachers as well as students.

I’m an experienced GCSE and A Level English Literature external examiner, regularly present at teach meets, and deliver CPD training to colleagues both in my own school and in others.

I am privileged to lead a highly talented and dynamic team of English teachers, learning that leadership is hard but rewarding, and that mistakes are gold dust if you embrace them.

I’m mum to a beautiful baby boy; the most important and challenging job and learning experience in the world!

I blog in order to develop myself, reflect on my experiences and share good practice.
