As a teacher of 39 years experience, I have always been interested in education, and as a former Headteacher of two Catholic schools, particularly in Catholic education.  At the end of my teaching career, I became an Inspector of Religious Education of our Diocese of Clifton and have therefore been able to bring these experiences and insights into my role as Governor here.  My two grandsons attend St Joseph & St Teresa’s and I am hugely supportive of the school, its’ staff and its’ mission and I feel privileged to be associated with it.

In 2010 I became the Support Staff Governor and a member of the Finance & Premises Sub-Committee.

I have lived in Wells with my husband and daughter since 2010, having previously worked in Bristol. I’m a self employed mortgage professional. We have a daughter that attended the school and has now moved onto St Gregory’s Catholic College in Bath. With work, plus my daughter’s dance and performing arts commitments, life is pretty hectic for us.

I arrived in Wells in September 2008 as Parish Priest. I previously served in Marlborough and Salisbury. I am delighted to be a governor as both my parents were teachers, but my primary contact with the children probably comes under the heading of Chaplaincy. I visit the school weekly and love to celebrate mass with the children in the school hall, classrooms and in church. Contact with parents is also important. I enjoy speaking to parents in the playground and when they ask to see me.
