"I have had the pleasure of being at Parkside for seven years and it has flown by. Appointed as Head in January 2019, I can honestly say I have enjoyed absolutely every minute of it. Previously Deputy Head at two different schools in Guildford and London, as well as a wonderful opportunity to work in School Improvement Teams in London, I have come to Parkside with a very clear idea of what I want for the pupils.
I love my job and I wouldn’t do anything else. Every day is different and the numerous roles I play ensure boredom never enters my vocabulary; teacher, mentor, coach, planner, historian, chorister, proud ‘parent’ and hopefully, an inspiration.
Spending time with my family and friends is very important to me; filled with fun, laughter and making and sharing new experiences. I enjoy playing the piano, cooking, reading, sailing and walking – discovering new places. The UK is so varied and beautiful there’s much to explore; I just need to get better at following charts/maps and my nose, so that detours become planned rather than unplanned!"
