I joined the governing body in January 2017 and am now the acting Chair of Governors. My background has always been in education and my career in teaching started in 1972. A long time ago! I have seen many changes over the years and I am still passionate about education and giving children the very best life chances. I was Headteacher of 3 different schools in Watford and Hemel over a period of 20 plus years and now work as an education consultant. I am fortunate to have been married to Laurence for 43 years and have 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren. My daughters are both teachers which pleases me greatly. I am thoroughly enjoying my governor role at Maple Cross and hope to continue for many years.
