Teacher, speaker, writer and educator
for students with Emotional
and Behavioural Difficulties.
My vision for education is one in which all differences are included and welcomed; education is flexible, relevant and leads towards positive social change.
Behaviour and Education Specialist
I am a teacher, speaker, writer and educator for students with Emotional and Behavioural Difficulties. With over 17 years’ experience, I teach these pupils in a variety of educational settings, train others to do so – in schools, universities and conferences, and advise on whole school approaches to supporting these students.
