I've been teaching for 12 years. My background is in Special Schools (SEMH) and Pupil Referral Units. Before becoming a teacher I worked as an event manager for radio stations across the country. I've travelled and worked extensively across West Africa. Currently I spend all my time either working or playing with my 2 sons, who have enough energy to power a small town. I love football and surfing and will hopefully get my 'weekend warrior' status back at some point in the near future
