School Improvement Chair
I have been Chair of Sharlston Community School since 2009 and have a background in Education. I have a Masters Degree in Education and an R S A Diploma in Drama in Education.
I qualified as a primary teacher in 1969 but over the years I have also taught in a special school, a secondary school and an FE College. I have also been a Local Authority curriculum support teacher, a freelance education consultant, an Ofsted Inspector, a Local Authority literacy consultant and a School Improvement Adviser.
I have worked mostly in the Wakefield and Barnsley areas but over the past 20 years I have also run many courses for serving teachers all over the country, on creative approaches to English and Drama and have written 5 books for teachers.
I am now retired and have two granddaughters, who go to Crofton schools.
It continues to be a privilege to work for Sharlston School and I look forward to being part of the Waterton MAT team.
