Before joining the Graduate School of Education in 2018, I spent 20 years working as a secondary English teacher (KS3-5) in schools across the South West, both in mainstream and alternative provisions. More recently I have worked as a Lecturer of Education working mainly on the MA Education Online programme, as we as the secondary English PGCE programme.
My interest in improving aspects of my own teaching practice, as well as a drive to develop my understanding of language and literacy teaching and learning, led me to complete a Doctorate in Education (EdD). My broader research interests centre on the writing process and the relationship between procedural and declarative metalinguistic knowledge. I am also interested in exploring links between:
- Literacy attainment, social disadvantage, and gender
- School-based gender inequalities
- Non-traditional students writing in the HE context
