I am a Senior Lecturer in Primary and Early Years Science.
Before joining MMU, I worked for ten years within Primary and Early Years settings.
Within these settings, I taught EYFS through to Year 6 and these experiences in conjunction with school roles as SENCo, Science and Mathemetics Subject Leaders have cemented my firm understanding about the teaching and learning expectations required for all key stages.
Additional experiences as a School Improvement Teacher for Manchester L.A, and Deputy Headteacher of two different primary schools have furthered my understanding about how consistent standards can be raised and maintained within a primary school.
Research interests relate to the role of technology to support early years and primary science. This focus formed the basis of my MSc dissertation and I have since contributed to several published educational books within this same field.
