I graduated from the University of Exeter with a BA (Ed) in English and Education. Since qualifying I have taught across the Key Stages and in a range of schools, both independent and state. My first teaching position was as a Year 5 class teacher in Harare, Zimbabwe which was an amazing experience and one that I often draw on today. This was followed by a wonderful few years at Airthrie - my second time here, as my first was as a pupil back in the 1980s!
I have many interests outside of teaching and particularly love spending time exploring nature with my son and our dog. I am also a keen baker and love any opportunity to rustle up a cake or two.
