I joined the School of Education in September 2013. Having taken my PGCE course at Homerton College, Cambridge, I was a primary school teacher for 14 years, teaching in three different primary schools. I was then employed as a primary mathematics consultant for Leicestershire Local Authority from 2004-2010. During this time I completed a Masters degree here at Leicester in Learning and Teaching. In 2010 I joined Nottingham Trent University as a Lecturer in Primary Mathematics before moving to a similar role at the University of Leicester in 2013. I completed my PhD in 2020.
My principle piece of research is my PhD titled ‘Early career primary teachers’ perceptions of the influences on their teaching of mathematics - a longitudinal study’. My other research papers are related to this research.
