Current role

Senior Lecturer


I am proud to be a Senior Lecturer in Education, and a LGBTQIA+ BAME role model. I am an active member of LGBTQIA+ and BAME networks. I work across several Initial Teacher Training programmes ranging from Early Years to Secondary. My main role is as the Mentor Lead working closely with other Higher Education providers to deliver high quality training across a range of settings. I have extensive experience in mentoring, coaching and developing meaningful collaborations. I work hard at building and creating networks and welcome collaborating to further strengthen mentor CPD or Kingston University to ultimately benefit students.

I have almost 20 years of primary school teaching experience both globally, online, and locally across South London. I have worked in a variety of primary settings ranging from an infant school, an 8-school federation, trusts, and academies. I have worked in a Teaching School and I have over 10 years experience of working as a Senior Leader.

I have worked alongside Global Cities.Inc, a programme of Bloomberg Philanthropies, as the first primary UK educator. I have trialled and evaluated this online e-learning platform, known as Global Scholars. I linked my MA research to evaluating the effectiveness of teaching online. I am also a member of the computing research group at the University I work at.

I am passionate about equality, diversity and inclusion. I am currently involved in a specialist inclusion and social justice research group in addition to an early years research group, exploring rights and responsibilities in a range of areas with pupils and staff in educational settings.

Other areas of interest and expertise include: leadership and management, mental health awareness and promoting LGBTQ+ awareness. I am always keen to support anyone who wants to network and support education in all its forms.

When I am not at work, I am a proud mum of two boys. I love motorbiking and building.
