My qualifications and interests lie in the 3-8 age range. Since obtaining my QTS I have taught for the past 15 years in Primary schools in East Sussex. The majority of my time has been spent teaching within the infant age range. Most recently I worked in The Early Years Foundation Stage where I was the Foundation Stage Leader. Prior to becomming a teacher I completed a National Diploma in Childhood Studies and I have experience of working with the zero to five age range in the home setting, nurseries and also Primary schools. 

My current research for my MA in Education at the University of Sussex, focused on my role as a tutor and the perceptions of and practices around student well-being.
