About Jennifer Webb
Jennifer Webb is a Teacher and Assistant Principal working in a busy secondary school.
I am a teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker.
I am currently Assistant Principal for Teaching and Learning at Trinity Academy Cathedral in Wakefield, 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 books, ‘How to Teach English Literature: Overcoming Cultural Poverty’ (2019), ‘Teach Like a Writer’ (2020) and ‘The metacognition Handbook’ (2021), all 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.
I am an experienced English teacher working in a state secondary school. My passion is to offer teachers more resources to further pupil education.
I present and deliver keynotes and act as a conference chair at a wide range of educational events. I am a founding organiser of T&L Essentials, which organises high quality, representative conference events for teachers across the Primary and Secondary sectors.
I love delivering training for teachers and school staff on everything from English subject knowledge to cross-curricular pedagogy, to leadership skills.
I write books for teachers, as well as penning blogs and articles for a range of publications. I currently have four books published.
I work with English departments to develop their curriculum and support their teachers to affect positive change.
I lead on teaching and learning and believe in amplifying the voices of underrepresented groups in school leadership. I engage with organisations such as WomenEd, BAMEEd and The Maternity CPD Project to further this ambition for our sector.
