Qualifications: BA(Hons) Theology & Religious Studies with QTS (First Class) at the University College of Ripon and York St John

Career overview: I have been teaching for over 20 years. In 2008 I was awarded an MA in Education (Merit) from Edge Hill and have worked with this university as an Associate Tutor, delivering training sessions to mentor teachers and teaching both RE and Art to students.

Professional interests: Qualifying to become a Level 3 Forest School Practitioner has given me a whole host of thinking, ideas, experiences and skills to immerse and inspire the children in our environment.

Personal interests: My personal interests include a love of Art which extends to all aspects of design and techniques and involves visiting galleries or exhibitions. I like to be active and enjoy travelling to new places, but am equally happy to be tending the garden or attending my book club.
