As a former Registered nurse and Health Visitor, I am relatively new to education. I commenced teaching in 2007 in an FE college, teaching on the level 3 CACHE Diploma in Childhood and Education. After completing my MA in Early Childhood Education in 2013, at the University of Sheffield, I was offered and accepted a job as a lecturer teaching at the University of Wolverhampton. I commenced this role in January 2014. In this, my current post, I teach across 3 courses which are all BA degrees; Childhood Studies, Family & Community Studies and the new Early Years Teacher degree. I teach on a range of modules such as Child Development, Children and Families in Society, Safeguarding and Wellbeing and Health in the Early Years. My background allows me to add a health strand to educational topics to offer a holistic view of factors that may impact upon childhood. I am also interested in aspects of social justice and exploration of the amazing world of babies! I am currently a participant on the Doctor of Education (EdD) programme at the University of Sheffield.
