I am father, improviser and educator. These rich experiences have led to the educational leader that I am today. Being a father has helped develop my empathy for the children and families that I work so closely with. Being an improviser has taught me to truly listen and be a responsive, collaborative and adaptable leader. Being a teacher has given me the power to shape society. As an educator, I have a firm belief in the power of education to be a key shaper of society. Each and every student who passes through my classroom is working towards being an effective member of our society and I see it as my duty to do everything in my power to prepare them for this. As an educator in a leadership position, it is a privilege to have the opportunity to impact a much wider range of learners, through the professionals I work with and alongside.
