"I have been involved in higher education for over thirty years, but it was the two years I spent as a secondary school Geography teacher in Zimbabwe in the 1980's that really inspired a love of teaching in me.

While I am from north London originally, I am proud to have lived in Lewisham since 1986 and brought up three children here. This has given me good knowledge of the local community and the school system in the borough; Deptford Green School has always had a reputation for innovation and inclusion and it is a real privilege to be a governor here.

The challenges facing the university sector are not that different from those encountered by secondary schools and my knowledge of running a large department, dealing with curriculum design, learning and teaching issues, student support and achievement all I hope prove useful to Deptford Green School".
