before teaching

I studied a degree in Psychology and progressed on to a teaching certificate in Special Educational Needs with Mathematics and English. My Masters Degree is in Forensic Psychology and Criminology.

career highlights and achievements...

I have always been a teacher. I teach because there is excitement, joy and fulfilment in the learners journey. The highlight of my career occurs every day when someone says 'I get it' or 'wow, that's amazing' or just, 'I enjoyed today, thanks you'


I was inspired by my Psychology teacher at college to become a teacher. He was a great teacher and he also gave me my first teaching job. In teaching, you change lives every day.
