I have worked in education since 1984 in a range of schools in London and the Midlands. My roles have included working as a senior leader, including leading a whole school coaching programme and as part of a team leading teaching and learning as well as various leadership roles within D&T. I also have experience outside of education working as a retail manager. I now work as a consultant and author delivering training, producing resources and providing in school support.

As well as working on my own projects I work with my husband, Paul Boyd, and together we are Boyd Education.
