Date you joined the School
September 2011

What do you do at Bethany?
I am Head of The Learning Support department (DLS) and SENCO for the School. I am a tutor in The Mount.

Other responsibilities?
Exam Concessions and Entrance Assessments.

What did you do before you came to Bethany?
I was SENCO at a local state school.

What is your favourite quotation and why?
Suck it and see – because I think you should probably give most things a try.

What was your favourite subject at School and why?
Geography because we did lots of trips and the teacher was funny.  I went on to do a Geography degree so I wonder if this was an influence.

What interests do you have outside Bethany?
We have a smallholding with sheep and chickens so that keeps me busy most of the time. I have two horses and ride them as much as possible.  We are renovating our house so I’m often very dusty at the weekends.

Who is your hero/heroine and why?
My dad.  He was on the team who invented the first super computer.  He was a Professor of Electronic Engineering and had the most incredible mind.

What is your favourite colour and why?
Green because it means it’s finally spring time – not so much mud!
