I graduated in 2000 with a 2:1 degree in Sociology & Social Psychology.

For 2 years I worked as a Web Designer/Developer.

In 2002 I trained as a Primary School Teacher at Manchester Metropolitan University, completing a PGCE.

Since then, I have taught in Year 1, 2, 3 and 4. I have held Advanced Skills Teacher status and been an Assistant Head before my current role as Deputy Head.


Like so many others, I am in education to positively impact on children's learning, whether that be directly as a teacher or training others.

I am in the fortunate position of being able to combine several of the things I am passionate about: teaching and learning, pedagogy, curriculum, graphic design and technology.


I have been hugely inspired by the work of Oliver Caviglioli, which has given me renewed belief in the power of coupling design with pedagogy.

The result of which is the creation of this site, where I hope you may find writing and visuals of interest and resources of use.
