I am a teacher, leader, author, blogger and speaker. I am currently the 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), available on Amazon here.
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 a beautiful little boy; 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.
