A little about myself
I have been teaching for 15 years. I started my career as a PE teacher for 6 years in East Sussex before joining a Pupil Referal Unit as an assistant head teacher. I then left this role to return to the first school I worked in to run the Additional Needs Department. Whilst here I gained my SENCO qualification at the University of Chichester. I then moved on to Redwood after relocating from East Sussex to join the team as Assistant Head with responsibility for Learning and Progress for Pupils and Key Stage Four.
Hobbies and interests – I enjoy playing all sports and coach Moneyfield Women’s Football Team who are a Portsmouth based team. I also enjoy reading and have 2 dogs called Lucie and Dave (both girls!) I am regularly found at my allotment and enjoy sharing gardening tips and tricks with our resident gardener and pupils at Redwood!
What you enjoy about working at your school
I love working at Redwood as no day is ever the same! The pupils are friendly, hard-working and love coming to school. We work hard to ensure that all pupils become resilient, mature and independent young people who are confident to move onto further education, employment or training when they leave us. In the three years that I have worked at the school every year I am blown away by how mature and independent our year 11 pupils have become and that they are all ready to leave us for College.
