This will be my fourth year teaching at Shaldon, having taken the Year 5 class and Year 3 class in previous years. Previously, I worked offshore and around the world as a hydrographic surveyor and, following that, spent a year working for the Navy developing their youth policy. I studied at the University of Plymouth for my BSc in Marine Navigation and later trained at Devon Primary SCITT for my PGCE. In my spare time, I enjoy all sorts of outdoor pursuits including mountaineering, sailing, skiing and cycling. Because of my love for the outdoors, I am always keen to incorporate the wonderful outdoor environment we have in the Southwest into our curriculum.
