I tweet and blog a lot about my network and how being an outward-facing leader who is connected to a wider educational community fuels me. It the last few years - through Twitter, StaffRm, #womened and now #bameed, through #teachmeets, #leadmeets and #researched - I have met a plethora of fantastic educational contacts who have inspired me, empowered me and connected me. Through these connections I have ended up meeting brilliant educators and collaborating on some fantastic projects. These collaborations have reignited my passion for my profession.
At Nottingham Girls’ High School we have a great reputation for presenting extraordinary opportunities which have the potential to take our students to a whole new level of confidence and achievement. As head of Outdoor Learning, it’s my job to inspire a love for the outdoors and a passion for exploring it in our girls and support them in that process, creating new and exciting opportunities for them.
