I attended STS from 1995 to 2002 and credit the school with much of my success.  I left school at 18 to complete a degree in Drama and Film Studies at the University of Kent and then went on to gain a PGCE in Citizenship Education at Canterbury Christ Church University, PG Cert in Executive and Life Coaching from the University of Chester and have recently completed a MSc in Teacher Education from The University of Oxford.   

As a teacher I have classroom experience in schools across Dover, Deal and Shepway and have taught a wide range of subjects and led teams of varying sizes during that time.  I currently work for a national education charity training teachers at all stages of their professional lives.  I work with teachers in some of the South East’s most challenging schools to ensure a fair and equal access for all children to high quality education. 

I believe wholeheartedly that every child should have access to not just a wonderful set of teachers, but an entire community that is welcoming, supportive and challenges them to be the very best they can be.  I look forward to working alongside school and governor colleagues to serve this very special school community.
