What do you like about the role?

I am a lecturer in primary education at Nottingham Trent University. My subject specialism is maths, and I teach across the PGCE, Schools Direct and BA routes. Prior to joining NTU in 2022, I worked across Nottinghamshire as a primary school teacher and maths lead, the majority of which was spent at Hillocks Primary Academy. I have an extensive understanding and passion for the school and its community. In addition to teaching in initial teacher training, I facilitate a research innovation work group for the NCETM as a trained mastery specialist and co-ordinate a Maths Leadership development group for the Diverse Association for Professional Learning. I am currently on the Executive Board for the ‘Association for the Study of Primary Education’ which supports and promotes research within primary education and on the editorial board for the Education 3-13 Journal. I recently completed my Masters in Education and continue to be an active researcher.
