Graduating with a degree in Education, Lisa has worked as a teacher in primary schools since 2005. During her career she has progressed from Classroom Teacher to Assistant Head and Deputy Head, before undertaking a post as a Headteacher. During her headship an Ofsted inspector commented: ‘Since your appointment, you have made a clear assessment of the improvement priorities needed, such as the focus on ensuring that pupils, including the most able, are challenged sufficiently. You have been highly effective in supporting the staff through this process.’ Lisa also pioneered an ongoing ‘Aspirations Week’ project to support and encourage the children in her school to reach further for their futures.
Lisa joined Young Giants in 2020 with a passion for ensuring all children and young people have the tools and support to achieve their full potential, whatever their personal circumstances and needs.
