I am a mother of 3, and was educated in Hereford, at Hereford Cathedral School and then returned to teach here when my children were small following a teaching career in Rickmansworth and Worcester.
I am currently an Assistant Head Teacher, Senco, and safeguarding lead at Aylestone Business and Enterprise College and federated primary schools, having been a Head of House and Head of Biology.
I love teaching, and being with young people, and am privileged to work with young people from age 4- 16 in my current role.
Outside my working life I love sports such as skiing and hockey, and singing .

Reception teacher. Head of EYFS.
I am both a teacher of English in education and a manager in the Children's Mental Health Charity. Being a governor gives me an insight into school management and procedures and allows me opportunities to help to develop school policies and procedures to ensure all pupils receive an outstanding education with a strong emphasis on their welfare.
As a Governor for St Thomas Cantilupe I bring experience from the financial sector where I have been a bank manager for over 10 years.
My other interests are Rugby where I am head coach for Hereford under 12's & helping on the 75 mile Char Raft Race that goes down the River Wye.
I became a parent governor at St Thomas Cantilupe during the school's first few years when both my children attended. After my family and work commitments eased, I returned to the role of governance and in 2012 took on the role of chair of governors until 2014. I serve at St Peter's Church as a priest and am very keen to support the school and its involvement with St Peter's.
I have been in teaching for over 20 years now. I have worked in a variety of school, from the smallest to the largest within Herefordshire, along with others in Hampshire. When I do have some spare time, I enjoy being in my garden or doing archery - I was the English Open Longbow Champion for 2014!
