I have been a teacher at Hunter Hall since 2008 specialising in Science, PE and Outdoor Education.

I have a BA Hons / QTS and a plethora of other qualifications including Mountain Training – Mountain Leader, Mountain Training – Rock Climbing Instructor, British Cycling Level 2 Mountain Bike Coach, RYA Dinghy Instructor (Sailing), RYA Safety Boat (Powerboat), and Rescue and Emergency Care Outdoor first aid.

 I love the wonderfully broad range of opportunities we provide to the children across the curriculum and making the most of the wonderful area that the school is located in, as we take our learning beyond the classroom.

 When I have a very seldom spare afternoon, I enjoy a bit of photography (although I wish I was better at it!)

 Not many people know, but I have recently joined Kirkby Stephen Mountain Rescue Team.
