I have a BSc (Hons) degree in Psychology, a PGCE in Primary Science and a MA in Education. I have worked at Bishop Grosseteste University, Lincoln, England for the past 11 years and for the last 3 years in the School of Teacher Development. I currently lead on English and Child Development across ITT programmes. I am an experienced primary classroom teacher and Specialist Teaching Consultant, but my background is in Psychology and clinical research. I am a member of the British Psychological Society (BPS) and have a particular interest in neonatal and maternal health.
