My Writing

Please feel free to look through my work and contact should you wish to commission for writing.

I love to write and blog.

I began creating writing to be published in 2016, by contributing articles to the International Teacher Magazine and Early Years Alliance. As part of my Masters I completed action research, which I now also love to do and study. I have included a section of my Masters Research.

More recently, I have written articles for the Times Educational Supplement, Impact Magazine (Chartered College of Education), Teach Early Years Magazine, Nexus Education and School Management Plus.

I enjoy reading and writing narrative and I am especially interested in qualitative research and studies in Early Years education.
