Now retired, I spent my entire life involved in education as pupil, student, teacher and lecturer in schools, further and higher education. I bring a passion to strive to deliver the best for all our children, a knowledge of the education system and experience of working as a governor and chair of governors.
Whilst bringing up my own family I spent some time as a foster carer and have since chaired a foster panel.
Finally, I worked with the Local Authority as a teacher representative on various committees.
In my free time i enjoy visiting friends and family who are scattered all over the UK and abroad. When with my daughters, we all enjoy going to contemporary and conceptual art galleries.
When at home I am learning to bead and enjoy growing vegetables.
I go to a local singing group and am a member of a local walking club.
