I am a teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker. I am currently Assistant Principal: Teaching, Learning and Staff Development at Co-op Academy Leeds, and have worked at a number of other schools in West Yorkshire, as a Head of English, an AST and a Lead Practitioner. I am the author of the best selling book, ‘How to Teach English Literature: Overcoming Cultural Poverty’ (2019) and ‘Teach Like a Writer’ (2020), both available on Amazon.
I deliver regular online CPD to hundreds of teachers every month and raise funds for a number of charities through ticket sales.
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 two beautiful little boys; 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.
