I am of Jamaican descent and was born and raised in Wolverhampton in the UK. I have taught and managed in educational establishments across the country for 37 years before retiring in 2020. I hold a Master of Education degree from the University of Sheffield, focussing on sport education.
In my retirement, I have become a professional busy-body and continues to scrutinise student work both nationally and internationally. I also sing with the Sheffield Community Choir and went on stage with Take That on their Greatest Hits tour. I dabble in piano playing and, even after a decade of practice, still refuses to play for an audience of more than two.
My first book Don't Poo in the Pudding Bowl is available now
