“You talk on such important subjects, so passionately! We should be doing more of this in schools”Head of Pastoral, Varndean School
I have had bottles of juice poured on my head, been whacked by a skateboard – and I have taught a year 7 pupil who has experienced severe trauma in their life, how to read their first ever word.
I love working and learning with these students; I am also a strong advocate for helping them be better understood and provided for.
In my conference talks and workshops I share these students’ experiences of learning – and for many, what they are battling with daily. I create a safe space for participants and audiences to put themselves in these students’ shoes; I provide fresh approaches and methods to successfully motivate the most challenging students; and I empower my audiences and participants to understand how important inclusive education is for our students and society.

“Inspiring workshop that has directly affected my planning and teaching. I am now thinking very differently than I did before this session. It really is a case of needing to walk in someone else’s shoes to understand their issues. Thank you.”Lorna Monroe - Teacher Participant at Practical Pedagogies Conference Cologne 2018
