I have always enjoyed working with children- at different ages over the years, from age 0 to 18. When I retired from teaching in an infant school, I looked for a school where I might become a governor. Complete chance brought me to Mary Towerton - and I wouldn't want it to be any other way now! I enjoy being in school with the children, and being part of the running of it too.
I have been a governor at Mary Towerton since 2007 initially as a Community governor and since 2012 as a Coopted governor. My current term of office as governor runs until November 2017. I am a member of the Performance and Resources Committees, serving as Chair of the Performance Committee. I am Vice-Chair of the Governing Body. My responsibilities as governor at Mary Towerton include that of SEND governor but I have a particular interest in these early years of education generally. Mary Towerton was the first school our daughter attended; we were impressed with the way the school welcomed their pupils and I still am impressed with the welcoming and nurturing environment the school provides.
I have been a governor at Mary Towerton since 2013 having retired from a long teaching career locally, in London and overseas. Since retirement I have enjoyed travelling in term time, gardening and working my allotment when I feel like it rather than when I found time and spending lots of time making memories with my family and friends. I am delighted to be a member of the Mary Towerton Governing Board working together with staff, parents and our local community as we move forward into the exciting times ahead.
