ITE Professional Tutor (Secondary)

Prior to joining the Harris ITE Team, I worked as a Chemistry teacher in various secondary schools in Cambridgeshire, Suffolk and Finland. I experienced a variety of roles within the schools I worked at: Lead Practitioner, Head of Science and Assistant Headteacher. I am a published education columnist in two national mainstream Portuguese and Finnish newspapers. I hold a Master’s degree in Science Education, having specialised in the use of technology in the classroom. I joined the Harris Federation in 2018. 

In my current role as an ITE Professional Tutor, I am co-responsible for NQT, mentor training and internships, in addition to looking after trainees in my allocated academies across the Federation.My interests are EAL research and practice, LGBT awareness in schools and sustainability and environmental issues in teacher education.
