I was born in Sheffield and moved here with my family. I was a pupil at the original Longmeadow school and my children went to Oaklands before the schools amalgamated and became Oakmeadow. I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be a teacher at my old school or the school where my own children went. I am married with 2 children who both got married this year. Simon who is 33 and has just returned from working in Beijing for 4 years and is now working in London again. Amy is 30 and working in Dubai with her new husband and we are looking forward to visiting them soon. I enjoy reading, gardening and travelling, having been to some fabulous places around the world I never thought I would go just so I could see my own children!
