I am the Assistant Principal: Teaching, Learning and Staff Development at Co-op Academy Leeds. I have worked at a number of other schools in West Yorkshire, as a Head of English, an AST and a Lead Practitioner. I enjoy speaking at conferences and teachmeets, and feel very strongly about CPD, research and personalised learning for teachers as well as students.
I am privileged to work with a highly talented and dynamic team, learning that leadership is hard but rewarding, and that mistakes are gold dust if you embrace them.
I’m mum to a beautiful little 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.
