I was delighted to have been invited to work as a Member for ‘Inspiring Learners Multi-Academy Trust’.
I bring a long and broad experience in education, having spent forty years working in and with schools. I started my teaching career back in the mid-1970s with ten years as a secondary maths teacher. After a further ten years of primary teaching I became Headteacher of a junior school. I was appointed as a Primary School Adviser for Trafford and spent another decade working alongside Heads and teachers.
Throughout my career I developed a passion for the processes of learning and how teachers can best develop children’s ability to understand, reason, question, link, recall, build and use what they are learning.
Although retired now for over three years, I keep in touch with developments in education through my own reading, through my grandchildren and through having two daughters who are primary teachers.
