About me

After early explorations in music and arts journalism in the Midlands I completed my undergraduate degree in English Literature in Cardiff. This was followed by a Primary PGCE with a specialism in English. As a primary school teacher I taught in Cardiff, London and Bristol. Over this time I led English, special needs provision and in later years was Deputy Head Teacher. I became a senior lecturer in Early Years and Primary Education at UWE Bristol in 2014, where my school experience led me to teach professional development modules across the PGCE Primary and EY and the Undergraduate route as well as leading English specialisms. I am currently a fellow of the HEA and I am joint Programme Leader for the PGCE alongside managing the programme's partnership and admissions. My research interests focus on class; language and also the professional identity and status of primary school teachers. I am currently in the research stage of my Doctorate which is entitled Is teaching a classed and gendered profession? Exploring the narratives of female primary trainee teachers.

Area of expertise
