My initial career was in Medical Pathology. However, the main focus of my work life has been largely in the field of education, involved in Senior Management in a primary school in Penarth, South Wales. l obtained my Degree in Education from the University of Wales in 1985. I have taught pupils across the Primary sector, however mainly focusing on teaching Year 6. I was involved in the transition process between Primary and Secondary school, liaising with Secondary feeder schools.
I have served on a number of committees to promote, amongst other things, the development of Mathematics in the Primary Curriculum. I was responsible for students placed with us from the University, in addition I was responsible for Looked After Children in our care.
We relocated from South Wales to the New Forest where I continued teaching on a supply basis. We have lived here since 2014.
