I am a Senior Education Officer, focussed on supporting Literacy and English and working in one of Education Scotland’s regional teams. My role allows me to work with educators at all levels of the system, regionally and nationally, to support literacy learning.
Promoting Reading for pleasure is one focus for my work and I’m interested in the influence of reading for pleasure on the poverty-related attainment gap. I work with educators at all levels of the system to share practice in this and many other areas of literacy.
My background is as a Secondary English teacher and Principal Teacher and other interests include literacy across learning and how assessment can be used to support learning in literacy.
