Teaching was at the core of my existence for over ten years. I worked in several ‘challenging’ comprehensives in London and Plymouth, teaching English, Drama, Media and Film. I was particularly interested in approaching education holistically, creatively and democratically, leading initiatives across the curriculum (which dovetailed with my Master of Teaching degree) and sitting on the Senior Leadership Teams of two schools.
Although I am not currently teaching I most certainly have not left the world of education behind. I am a governor at my local secondary school and have recently been appointed to Ofqual’s panel of external experts.
I keep a close eye on developments in the world of education, both from the perspective of an educationalist and a parent, and blog about anything that gives me pause to ponder. You can read some of those posts below.
