My teaching career began when I had the great privilege to study Outdoor Education and Natural History at Antioch University, Ohio, USA. Here I found my vocation for teaching and learning. In addition to this, my undergraduate training as a zoologist, led me to become a strong advocate to Outdoor Learning and Learning for Sustainability. My path led then to Exeter University, where I studied for a Primary Science PGCE, and received the Ted Wragg Award. My teaching practice in primary schools was highly rewarding, and here I continued my research into Outdoor Learning and the use of technology in schools.
In 2012 I started to teach on the Primary Science PGCE at Exeter. The following year I lead the Early Years Specialist, and currently lead the School Direct@Exeter Primary PGCE. Alongside this I am the academic lead for Teach First Primary (South Coast)
My research interests are currently linked with the Re-Place Research group. Here, we are researching connections and effects of environment and sustainability on the relational pedagogies of trainee teachers.
