Biography

I was born in County Durham, England, and brought up in East Yorkshire. I spent 7 years teaching in South Yorkshire before emigrating here with my husband in 1985.

My teaching experience has been primarily in early childhood education, and I am particularly passionate about literacy learning, and children’s participation rights.

I completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Child Advocacy in 2006 and a Master of Arts (Child Advocacy) in 2010.
