Key areas of expertise:

My area of expertise is Literacy and I have now led this subject in three different schools. Although I am the Literacy subject leader I also lead on general teaching and learning across the school and feel that one of my strengths is to provide support as well as inspiration and teaching ideas in all subjects.

Key strengths:

My strengths include leadership of whole school developments. I am currently leading the implementation of the use of ‘Quality texts’ as the basis of all Literacy lessons.

I have worked alongside Teachers in my own school as well as through external support work. My own experiences in a range of settings allow me to provide relevant support for individual teachers. I have good listening skills as well as enthusiasm which I feel are essential to any support or partnership work.
