I joined the Governing team in 2014 when my daughter was in the Primary – I have always liked the community, village school feel and ethos of Hooe Academy, I thought I might be able to contribute to the school and wanted to help in making Hooe the best it could be.
Not having an Education background I have had to learn a lot, but have found my other skills have contributed in other areas.
I have been lead Governor for property and premises for the last few years, this role in the Governing Body looks at health and safety, the premises and its Management. I am the current school improvement governor for Maths.
My other interests include, gardening, cooking, paddle boarding and cycling.
