I have been climbing and mountaineering for a good few years now. My travels have taken me to the Himalayas, Iceland, Spain, France, Africa and many other places. This year I plan to globe trot and see a few more places! I love the outdoors and anything to do with it.I am currently a teacher at a high school in Stoke on Trent, I am also a Duke of Edinburgh's Award Officer . Both these jobs mean I get to spend time outdoors, either on expedition with groups or out in the Peak, worlds best job if you ask me!
I am passionate about the outdoors and it will always be huge influence in my life. I enjoy teaching anything outdoors, and I have worked for several outdoor centres and I plan to continue it for as long as I can, delivering training and activities to the best of my ability. My work with the Duke of Edinburgh's Award really allows me to transfer the passion I have to the younger generation and hopefully inspire a few people along the way!
All in all I like helping people and sharing knowledge with others, whether that is listening or speaking, so any questions you feel I could help with please drop me a line!
Anything Else We Should Know I have a degree in BSc Geography with Mountain Leadership from Staffordshire University, and I am still involved with the university teaching and mentoring Mountain Leadership students in their teaching placements around Stoke on Trent. Assisted with the teaching of Keele Uni PGCE students this year by teaching a GPS module including calibration of maps, and GPS handset use. I am also a qualified teacher, working towards a Master's degree in Education.
