This website is where I host my old blogs, and any new blogs that I have the time to write. I also host guest-blogs by my friends and colleagues.

I also speak and present at local and national education events, such as #ResearchED, #BrewED and #WomenED.

In May 2020, I gave a talk as part of ResearchEdHome on Love and Knowledge in Leadership. You can watch it here.

You might also want to look at the grassroots organisation I set up with a small team of dedicated Northamptonshire educators.

It’s called #EducatingNorthants.  We’re also on Twitter (@EduNorthants), Facebook and Instagram.
