Chair of Governors
Foundation Governor

I have taught in many different Primary schools and in Lincolnshire for the last 30 years culminating in a Primary Headship. I also worked for the County as a maths adviser. I have five grandchildren and two of them attend Saxilby School. I have a particular interest in Special Educational Needs and ICT.

Both of my children attended Saxilby School. I have two grandchildren. I was previously a governor in the 1990s but resigned due to work commitments. However, I maintained my interest in both education and the school and having taken early retirement I became a governor again in January 2013.

I have two granddaughters at Saxilby school. Before retiring, I was an early years teacher and also ran my own Nursery school. I am the governor linked to the Foundation stage and enjoy working as a volunteer with this age group.

Foundation Governor

I was born in London 1951 and studied in Hamburg, later working in Europe and travelling extensively. I am fluent in English and German, rusty in French but can read and write a little Hebrew. I was brought up in an orthodox Jewish family. I converted to Christianity 15 years ago after a serious illness. I come from a family of teachers (mother, aunts, cousins) and have always been interested in education.

I have nine grandchildren of various ages, including three currently at the school. My hobbies are travel, cooking and eating (from my Jewish Heritage), reading, art and classical music.

As a former pupil and with a child at Saxilby, I am keen to support the school in fostering its core values, education and extracurricular activities, whilst developing our links with the local community and parents.
