  • About

    I joined the Teacher Education team at Sheffield Hallam in September 2013. Prior to this I taught in Key Stage 2 and was subject leader for Literacy. I was also part of the leadership team with responsibility for adult support. This included mentoring of students and adults in school. I worked as an Associate Lecturer for Sheffield Hallam before joining the team full time.

    At Sheffield Hallam I work in the Primary English team.  I am also the Year 3 Leader for the BA Primary Education (5-11) with QTS and BA Early Years and Primary Education (3-7) with QTS courses.

    My teaching interests mainly involve the teaching of English, particularly in relation to drama and digital literacies.

  • Research

    The research for my MA in Learning and Teaching has focused on the teaching of English. This has included the use of drama, digital literacies and cross-curricular links. My MA dissertation project focused on the evolution of language and grammar and implications for the teaching of English.

    I am currently studying on the Doctorate in Education course at Sheffield Hallam and my research is investigating the role of drama in exploring the affective dimensions of English.

    While working in school and during my time at Sheffield Hallam, I have been part of a teacher/researcher group at Sheffield Hallam, which explores children's use of 21st century literacies.  Research has focused on children’s uses of digital literacies and their explorations of virtual worlds. We have presented this research at UKLA (United Kingdom Literacy Association) international conferences in 2011, 2012 and 2016 and published articles about the projects in English 4-11 Magazine.

    In 2016 I participated in a lesson study project with local teachers and the Sheffield Hallam Primary English team investigating descriptive approaches to grammar teaching. This research was presented at UKLA's International Conference in 2016.
