“I started working at Eltham College in 2016, after nine years at Chigwell School, where I sat on the Senior Leadership Team, developing Pastoral Care. I have also previously taught, and been a Head of, Science and ran a Sixth Form boarding house for several years.
My background means that I am passionate about the role of STEM education in schools and the critical importance of wellbeing, particularly with regard to respect towards others and embracing difference. I believe that a love of reading underpins everything in both education and life, and would like to see all children ‘living’ thousands of lives through books.
As a person, I would describe myself as approachable, methodical, calm and reflective, ever striving to become a better version of myself. My two greatest interests are travelling and reading, but I am also a keen amateur photographer, theatre-goer, hiker, swimmer and wildlife-watcher. I am also a ‘Tolkienite’, who has amassed close to 400 English language editions of his books, but do not despair, I never raise it in conversation. One thing I do like to raise, especially when reminding students how different things were in the past, is the only time I have ever won anything in a competition: an Atari Lynx, in 1992, via a ‘finish the sentence’ tie-breaker question on the back of a cereal box. I still have it today.
