Life before Teesside High School

I studied Web Development at Teesside University, and spent nearly 5 years working in retail at HMV (running various departments, including technology).  I additionally spent 4 months as the Charity Web Editor for Bauer Media’s Cash For Kids, which sparked a lifelong interest in radio, and as a result, I have recently started studying Radio (Production and Management) at the University of Sunderland.  I have also been a Great North Run member since 2010, and look forward to running in my 7th Great North Run this autumn.

What do you enjoy most about your job?

Getting to see the Digital Learning Programme grow within the school, and seeing the creativity that tablets can inspire in pupils.

What do you enjoy most about Teesside High School?

The friendly atmosphere here at the school and the enthusiasm of staff and students, which makes it feel like a big family.

What is your favourite time of the year?

The half term before Christmas is always a nice time of year, with Speech Day, the Carol Service and Pre-Prep Nativity all taking place.

What do others say about you?

Hard working and always go out of my way to help others.
