I have worked at Sheffield Hallam University since 2008 in the Primary and Early Years Teacher Education department.
Prior to my work with SHU, I worked in a number of Primary schools in England including schools in Birmingham, Nottinghamshire, Peterborough and Sheffield. I have taught across the whole Primary and Early Years range.
I was a Primary Head Teacher in Nottinghamshire.
I also held the role of SENCO.
I teach on a variety of Primary and Early Years Education modules and lead on EAL. As partnership co-ordinator, I liaise with students, staff and outside agencies in a number of different areas.
I teach on a variety of modules such as inclusion, EAL, Science and RE. I am currently year 3 leader for the Primary and Early Years BA course.
