1. Best thing about teaching? 

Witnessing the growth and progress of students as they learn and develop both academically and personally.

2. Best city you've ever visited/lived in? 

I love York. It is such a friendly place with lots to do. I have to admit, I am not such a fan of big cities though and prefer to go to more rural places. We did a road trip to Skye a few years ago and that was the most stunning scenery I have ever seen.

3. A song you listen to when happy/sad? 

I just love the song "Crimson and Clover" by Tommy James and the Shondells.

4. Biggest education inspiration? 

Cheryl Edwards.  For fourteen years we have been building provision for young people with mental health needs and fighting for them.  She is a total inspiration.

5. Describe your TTR shows in one word


6. Favourite TTR guest (on one of your shows)

I'll go for Joe Hayman who talked about Fundamental British Values - it was also my very first show and he was so supportive!


7. Favourite TTR episode (of yours) so far and why? 

I loved speaking about balancing work, study and life with Ben, my husband. It did make me reflect on how much we take on, and how we support each other. It was also nice to sit and chat for an hour, albeit on the radio!

8. Your teaching philosophy?

Be who you needed when you were younger.

9. Best bit of advice you ever got?

You can't pour from an empty cup.

10. Dream guest on your TTR show?

Jared Cooney Horvart, he is an expert in the field of Educational Neuroscience with a focus on translating neuroscientific principles to enhance teaching and learning practices within the classroom.
