First and foremost, I am an English teacher. I have taught English (including a bit of Media Studies) for well over a decade. If it is tragic and gothic, laced with humour and bitter truths then I'll teach it! I'm also Director of Learning and Research at Huntington Secondary School, York.
I am the proud author of 'The Confident Teacher' and 'Teach Now! English'. I write regularly for the TES and Teach Secondary magazine.
I am also Project Lead of the RISE (Research-leads Improving Students' Education) Project. An EEF funded randomized controlled trial to evaluate if and how a Research-lead can help improve outcomes for students. I am also a privileged member of the ResearchEd Advisory Panel.
