I am a Canadian currently living, working and studying in London, England. I have worked at schools in both Canada and England in a variety of roles in primary and secondary education: teacher, consultant, behaviour specialist, program leader, senior manager, team leader and mentor. I was the director of a government funded violence prevention project for the Ottawa-Carleton District School Board (CAN) and an active coach in the Ontario volleyball community for 10 years. Prior to my arrival in London, I volunteered as a chair of volleyball athlete development and worked with high performance volleyball athletes aged between 16 and 23 through regional and provincial team programmes.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Society for the Arts and the College of Teachers, an Associate of the Ontario Principals' Council and an Ontario Certified Teacher. I am a member of the National College for Teaching & Leadership and possess Qualified Teacher Status in the UK. I completed my Master's degree at the University of North Carolina (USA), my undergraduate teacher training at Queen's University (CAN) and my initial undergraduate degree at Athabasca University (CAN).
I am currently the Deputy Headteacher of Learning & Teaching at an amazing primary school in inner London.
