I have worked in education for over 30 years both in the UK and Australia as a class teacher, school leader, local authority adviser and teacher trainer. I am passionate about putting children back in the centre of the picture to ensure that education becomes, once more, about child development and the releasing of potential. My philosophy of education is that education should be creative and relevant, focussing on building confidence and finding ways of encouraging children to work cooperatively and independently to solve problems and move forward. Having spent the last ten years in Year 6, I have become increasingly concerned about the negative impact of our current curriculum and assessment framework on the health, well being and overall confidence of the children. As a Christian educator, Teaching Rainbows is all about bringing hope and the joy that primary education should characterise for all children.
