Why am I a governor?
Before taking a career break to raise my own family I was a secondary school teacher for 16 years, 12 of them in local schools including 8 at George Spencer. I started out as a teacher of French and went on to also become involved in teacher training before moving on to a senior leadership role in the city. I loved educating 11-19 year olds and I now feel very privileged to be experiencing the learning journeys of children aged 0-11yrs, this time from the perspective of a parent.
I wanted to take on a more active role and felt my experiences to date would enable me to be an effective governor. I felt that I could help challenge and support Chetwynd Primary Academy in achieving its ambitions for the benefit of all of our children.
