I have been in full time teaching for the last twenty-eight years, and feel that I have obtained extensive and valuable experience, in all aspects of education. I have a deep love for teaching, and this coupled with my desire to develop and grow the learners, makes my work more of a vocation than a job. I have strong people skills with an ability to liaise at all levels. This allows me to relate to learners and educators alike. I love new ideas and have an ability to bring enthusiasm and energy to my work in such a way so as to motivate others. This is achieved, sometimes in difficult situations, through humour and understanding. Moreover I am commited to professional growth, and in particular curriculum development with a keen interest in the link between archaeology and history.
