I am currently the Director of IT in an Independent school in the UK. Prior to this I worked as the Head of Learning Technologies working with public and private schools across the Middle East. This includes leading the planning and development of IT within a number of new schools opening in the UAE. As a trained teacher with over 15 years working in education my experience includes UK state secondary schools, further education and higher education, as well as experience of various international schools teaching various curricula. This has led me to present at a number of educational conferences in the Middle East plus in the UK. In addition I am a Google and Microsoft Certified Educator, a Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert 2016 and an Apple Teacher. I also have experience of the technical side of IT as an ISACA Certified Information Systems Auditor (CISO).
I am deeply passionate about technology and about education. This logically has led me to my focus on educational technology, to how technology can be used within this classroom and in learning in more general terms.
