Deputy Head Teacher
I trained as a middle school teacher which enabled me to teach in both primary and secondary schools. I began my teaching career working in mainstream primary and secondary schools in Sunderland where I taught the primary curriculum mainly in year 6 and maths in secondary school. I quickly realised I had a real connection with SEND children and decided to move into special education. I have worked in 4 authorities in a variety of special schools; mainly SEMH, for most of my career to date. I have had a number of positions as a teacher, head of department, Assistant Head Teacher, Lead Practitioner and now Deputy Head Teacher. My role as Deputy Head enables me to work closely with the head teacher and all stakeholders to ensure we meet the needs of all children by giving them an enriching, creative education that equips them for life. I would not accept anything other than outstanding for my own children and therefore strive to ensure we offer just that to all the children here.
