BIOGRAPHY

“I joined the Vital team in April 2022 after 17 years of teaching in primary education. During that time I led many subjects but was given the role of ICT coordinator during my NQT year. The subject has changed beyond recognition since then and I have enjoyed the challenge of adapting and also seeing the wider influence of technology within teaching and learning.ย 

โ€œAs an assistant headteacher in my previous school, I was able to roll out the use of chromebooks and GSuite to transform the way learning took place. I have vast experience in using technology innovatively in my own classroom as well as developing its use by other teachers.ย 

โ€œDuring my time as computing lead for Ebor Academy Trust, I worked alongside teachers, computing leads, and headteachers to develop the use of technology within their schools. This involved working 1:1 with teachers, preparing and delivering bespoke CPD, and helping subject leaders with developing their computing and technology strategy. I am really enjoying the opportunity to continue working within schools and ensuring that the children get the most out of the technology within school.”
