I have been involved in education for over 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Pedagogics from the University of Groningen in The Netherlands, the country where I grew up. Before moving to England, I taught at private schools in Zimbabwe and Botswana. In Botswana I was in charge of a primary school.
I have been part of the Village Academy since 2012, teaching and fulfilling a deputy role at both Lynsted & Norton and Selling School. I became the Headteacher at Petham in September 2016 and am now the Executive Headteacher for Petham and Dymchurch Primary Schools.
I am passionate about providing every child with the best opportunities so that they can achieve to their fullest potential and I am proud to lead two, very different but, hard working and dedicated teams of staff, who enable our children to experience wonderful and varied learning opportunities. We work tirelessly across both schools to ensure the best possible outcomes and experiences for our children.
