What did you want to be after you left school?
I didn’t know, was thinking about teaching (come from a family of teachers)

Once or twice - oops!
What's your favourite food?
What topics do you work on?
Literacy and language learning and development
What methods do you use?
Who was your favourite teacher?
My chemistry teacher at Camden – such a support personally and academically
Me and my work
I am keen to find out more about how language impacts on literacy learning and how once you can read, this feeds back into language learning
In my role I juggle research (e.g., planning studies, analysis, writing), teaching (lectures, marking, student research supervision) and what we call admin (e.g., leadership in the department, I support others to engage with non-academic stakeholders)
