I worked as a classroom primary teacher and as the Head of Curriculum at a large primary school before completing my Masters of Education and beginning work in the tertiary setting. Originally from Australia, I now lecture in the Primary Education program at The University of Stirling. In the past I have enjoyed contributing as a consultant in the creation of school programs and in providing professional development to teachers. My PhD investigated primary teachers' understandings of the teaching of children's literature. I am passionate about literacy, language, and literature as well as education in general.
