Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am an Early Years Teaching Fellow at Strathclyde University and the course leader for the BA Childhood Practice degree. After graduating with an honours degree in Sociology/Psychology I initially worked as a play leader in out of school care, preschool and playgroup settings. I have been a primary teacher, nursery teacher and children’s centre manager, teaching across local authority and private sectors.

I graduated with the MEd Early Years Pedagogue degree completing a research project with a Dissertation Title of “Emotion Coaching: Moving from Behaviourism to Nurture in a Nursery Class.”

I am passionate about supporting the development of sustained empathic practice in the early years workforce. My teaching considers the relationship between personal emotional constructs, emotion regulation and empathic early years practice.
