English/ Assistant Specialist Subject Leader
After several years dithering about at university and exploring the wynds of Edinburgh, I heard the unmistakable call of secondary school teaching and completed a BA followed by an honours year reading English Literature and Medieval and Early Modern European texts. 2020 is my tenth year in this crazy profession. As an English teacher, I love exploring texts with students: both challenging them with new ways of reading the world, and being challenged by them in return. When I’m not teaching, I can be found playing guitar for a couple of rock bands and collecting records. I live in West Auckland with my beautiful wife, my daughter, Abby, my bro, Len, and two silly dogs.
