1. Every day my position as a teacher was communicating complex concepts simply, in order for
all learners to access.
2. As a Literacy Consultant, I have worked with all educational stakeholders from training
teaching assistants in the complexity of grammar and reading skills to educating parents in test
expectations and an understanding of the English curriculum. As well as delivering training on
the power and skill of quality questions, neuroscience and coaching skills.
3. When planning units of work, I would model write for each genre plus develop grammar

1. After making the decision to leave teaching, I established my own limited company and have
run it for the last 3 years creating a good income but now it is time for a directional change and
new challenges using the skills learnt and developed. I am also disillusioned with the state of
education; the curriculum does not lend itself to educating our future generations for the future.
2. To continue using my knowledge and skills, I write textbooks plus sell resources on the Times
Educational Supplement website to create a passive income.
