I became a teacher later in life after beginning my working life in a research laboratory and having three children. I am a CPD addict and love to discover new ideas and resources for the teaching and learning of science. Over my time at Irchester, I have led the school through PSQM three times and I have just started as a PSQM hubleader, helping other schools through the same process.
Since winning a PSTA, I have undertaken a research project on assessing children's prior knowledge and have since written a book called 'Explore, Engage, Extend' which aims to support this area and subsequent planning. I am part of a PSTT funded cluster of five schools and I am also part of the Primary Science Capital research project with University College London.
