I was a PSTA in 2004 whilst teaching at St Edwards, Runcorn. In 2013 I left Manchester Metropolitan University as Senior Lecturer in Primary Science to become inaugural College Director.
Since 2016 I have worked part-time as Area Mentor for Northern Ireland, and currently as Regional Mentor for North Wales pursuing my passion for science. I work with teachers to inspire them to deliver practical science with particular links to cross-curricular topics and active learning outdoors. I take my inspiration from the foundation phase to encourage doing and questioning.
When not working I can be found Nordic Walking, gardening, or playing with my grandchildren.
