“Technology is a permanent and important part of everyone’s life. As an educator I have a duty to ensure that every student in every school has the opportunity to explore its potential and use it effectively and that every teacher has the capacity to make this possible.”
My career as a teacher began in 1978 working in a large comprehensive high school in South East England as a teacher of history predominantly, but over the years I also taught French, sociology, sex and health education, and physical education.
Having gained my Master’s degree from the University of London, I moved from the classroom into school administration becoming the principal of a high school close to the South East of London. After working in that position for seven years it was time for a change. I moved to Myanmar to become the founding principal of an international school for 3 to 18 year old in Yangon.
I returned to school to complete my doctorate at Maryville University where I now work as an assistant professor of education teaching graduate students who aspire to be principals and superintendents. Whilst I have enjoyed all of the aspects and roles in my career, this current position is just fabulous.
