I am the Deputy Head teacher of The Pines School and was Co-opted onto the board of governors
in September 2019. I have the responsibility for health and safety and am a member of the outcomes committee.
All of my working career I have been in education. I first worked at The Pines School as a teaching
assistant before going to university to train as a teacher. I then went on to teach in a four form
entry mainstream school progressing to Assistant Head with responsibility for inclusion before
re-joining The Pines School.
I have been an observer on the board of governors since I started my role as Deputy Head teacher
and felt that now was the right time to become more involved in the decision making process.
Why did you become a governor?
Working at The Pines School is both challenging and rewarding, no two days are the same! Being a
member of the board of governors means I can extend my role further and work alongside the
staff and governors to continue to provide the best education possible for our pupils.
As much as I can I love to go travelling with my family, the hotter the better. I enjoy reading and
watching football, especially my team Everton. My extended family are very important and I
travel to Liverpool as much as I can to visit them.
