As Class 4 Teacher and KS2 Leader, I am in my seventh year as Staff Governor and I sit on the Curriculum Committee. Both my children had a very happy Primary education at Dr Radcliffe’s and I was privileged to teach my son. My experience in education began in 2005 when I became a supervisor at Steeple Aston Pre-school. In January 2009, I joined Dr Radcliffe’s as a TA before training to become a teacher via the Graduate Teacher Programme. I was very fortunate to do my training at Dr Radcliffe’s. I chose the teaching profession because I have a strong desire to continually learn new ideas and wanted to use my enthusiasm to inspire others to learn.
Before entering the education profession, I was a Clothing Retail Buyer, where I was responsible for a department with an annual turnover of £15m, and had my own company for 7 years. These experiences of leading, supporting and developing teams have translated into skills that are beneficial to teaching and someone in a governing position.
In my spare time, I love keeping fit and spending time with my family.
