Within Teacher Education, my specialist area of interest is Primary English education. I have been involved in the leadership of English throughout most of my professional career, both in schools as the curriculum subject lead and in other universities. I am interested in all areas of the English curriculum, but particularly in the teaching and learning of grammar.
Alongside my undergraduate and postgraduate English teaching, I am a PGCE Academic Adviser and, as such, I teach on the associated Masters level modules.
