I’m a teacher, a senior leader, a researcher and and a parent. I’m a stubborn optimist and privileged to be part of a wider community of educators.

  1. Hi there Emma,
    I have been reading your blog and enjoying all your thoughts on your senior leadership role. I know you have lots on your plate but I was wondering if you had considered writing a book for teachers to share some of your wise words? If this is of any interest at all, I would be delighted if you could get in touch with me here at Bloomsbury (helen.diamond@bloomsbury.com).

  2. Hi, I just read your article in this week’s TES magazine. I wish I had read it a few months ago. Having recently returned back to work following mat leave I had to give up my role as a senior leader because I was told senior leaders can’t work part time even though I have a proven track record of being one of the strongest leaders in school. I am a part time class teacher and though I love having extra time at home with my young family and love teaching, I feel trapped and frozen in time. I feel that my expertise are not being used and I have to sit quietly and get on, I don’t know where my career path will go next but it seems very unlikely it will move on to the position I know that I am most capable of. I read your article and for the first time in a while I felt hopeful…
    Thank you

    • Hi – Just picked up this message. Would be really interested in a chat; though I don’t have the answers, necessarily! Just some ideas. Do you have an email address I could contact you on?

  3. Emma I really want to read your thesis….really, really! Any chance?! I am just embarking on an EdD and my proposed title is around parenthood, Early Years and career ambition, as mine went out the window as the baby developed…I read your blog and I think you are brilliant. Anyway, if there is any chance of a sneak preview, I would love to read it.
