Originally qualified as a teacher, I have worked in a number of education settings and children's services in England and have particular experience of working with young people who have offended, looked after children and young people with emotional and behavioural problems.  I joined the University in 2008 and have enjoyed teaching on a range of courses including Foundation and Bachelor’s degrees.  I have designed and delivered many units including Society and Representations of Youth Culture, Who’s in Charge? and Working with Looked After Children.
