Having being brought up in Newcastle I moved to Manchester for university where I studied for a BA Hons in Social Policy, followed by a PGCE in primary education at Didsbury School of Education.

I later relocated to Cumbria where I met my husband and had my 3 children.

I have worked as a supply teacher at Hunter Hall for a number of years and thoroughly enjoy every minute of it, latterly having taken responsibility for an upper school form class.

A fun fact! Did you know when I was 40 I won the Appleby Rotary Club Fun run as the first adult female to cross the finish line. I’ve now hung up my running shoes for walking shoes instead…
