Throughout my long career in education, as a teacher and Headteacher, what I enjoyed doing most was finding the key to unlocking the blocks that were preventing students from learning at their best. I was innovative and creative, constantly searching for alternative ways to help students who were facing challenges.
My mission was always to help students (and staff!) uncover their unique gifts and talents, find their passion and develop skills to be the best they could be.
I have always been committed to working ‘at the chalk face’ – often in very challenging schools. My proudest achievements have been successfully turning round two schools judged to be ‘failing’. OFSTED inspectors praised me for my ‘outstanding visionary leadership’.
Throughout my life, I have never stopped improving my own skills and knowledge and continue to do so in my ‘retirement’.
