Learning to Lead

Thoughts and Reflections of a leadership journey

About me

I am a teacher. It’s what I started out as, and it’s what I still am. Over my career so far, I have worked in some great places, learnt some amazing things and had the opportunity to continue to challenge myself. I progressed from being a teacher to a deputy head, and, since 2015, a headteacher.

Along the way, I have been privileged to work with some amazing people and have adapted my styles as I have gained experience. One thing I had never really done until recently was read more deeply about education and theory. After seeing Rob Carpenter speak, I had to buy his book. From there, I have continued to deepen my understanding of pedagogy, curriculum and leadership. My biggest regret is that I didn’t do this sooner. I am glad I have the opportunity to be a lifelong learner, and share my thoughts with others. Some may resonate with you, others may provoke thought.

I’ve never written blogs before. I suffer from impostor syndrome. However, through my colleagues support, and kind words from the #edutwitter world, I am giving it a go. Be gentle – I’m still learning!
