About me

Prior to becoming a Teacher Educator, I worked for a number of years as a Primary Teacher in Manchester and Oxfordshire. During this time I trained to become a Specialist Mathematics Teacher, became a Senior Leader and worked part-time as a Mathematics Consultant for Oxfordshire Local Authority. Since then I have worked as a Senior Lecturer in Primary Mathematics, firstly for Oxford Brookes University and then more recently for the University of the West of England in Bristol. I have a Masters degree in Mathematics Teacher Education from The University of Oxford and am a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. At present I teach and support both post-graduate and under-graduate trainee teachers to develop their ability and confidence to teach Primary Mathematics.   

Area of expertise

My area of expertise is Primary Mathematics, with a research interest in how to develop mathematics subject and pedagogical knowledge in trainee teachers; specifically the use of pre-teaching (for both trainees and their students) and the use of theoretical perspectives to help develop meta-cognitive approaches to knowledge development in trainees.
