I have been working in Primary Education since beginning my own PGCE in 1986 and have taught in a number of schools in London, Derbyshire and Birmingham. I held the post of Deputy Headteacher in two schools and Acting Headteacher in another before I decided, in 2004, to develop my career within teacher education. I took up the post of Senior Lecturer in Primary Mathematics at what is now Newman University in September 2004 and ended my time there as Head of Primary Core Subjects in August 2013. I took up my present post at BCU in September 2013 to continue my professional development and to contribute to the education of our future primary teachers in a larger university. My enthusiasm for this important role remains as strong as ever.
