  • About

    Before working at SHU I taught Science in Nottinghamshire schools for nearly 20 years. I had a variety of leadership roles including Head of Science and Co-ordinator of Continuing Professional Development. I feel very privileged to be able to work with teachers and trainee teachers and to support their professional development at Sheffield Hallam University.

  • Research

    My research interests are around part-time and flexible working in schools. This involves researching taken for granted everyday practices and how these affect those carrying out these patterns of working and their relationships with career progression.
