About me

Having worked as a primary school teacher in South Wales in 2010 I joined UWE as a Senior Lecturer in Primary Humanities. During this time I have become a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and I was awarded a publishers award by the Geographical Association for Jumpstart! Geography. 

Area of expertise

My role as a senior lecturer involves training both undergraduate and post graduate teachers in subject knowledge and subject pedagogy of primary history and geography. I regularly work with a range of schools to support their teaching and research in this area.  I primarily taught in schools with high levels of social deprivation which has influenced my passion for social justice. My doctoral research is triggered by wider discources such as social justice, constructions of childhood and developing children's awareness of past events in history.  I have explored through qualitative research how teachers navigate the curriculum when teaching issues that have the potential to be both sensitive and controversial in the current educational and political climate in the Twenty First Century.  I am currently involved in collaborative research in Project Zulu with Ben Knight and this involves developing a contrasting locality resource entitled 'We are Madadeni'.  Other current research is involved with working with DR Verity Jones Education (EDU) and Professor Lyndsey McKeown who is based in the Built Natural Environment (UWE).
