I am an educational consultant for Religious Education. I was a secondary RE teacher for 26 years and an advanced skills teacher for RE since 2001. I am 50, married and live in Christchurch, Dorset, a beautiful part of the world but way too busy. I'd rather be in the Orkney islands! I used to sing and play lead guitar in a silly rock covers band called the 'Tattooed Love Gods'. I loved teaching RE, every lesson was different and the opportunities for developing critical thinking and wrestling with ultimate questions with teenagers was a fantastic experience. I did in the later years spend more and more time working with primary RE teachers who were often given RE co-ordinator roles with no warning, training or support. Helping them was very rewarding. This lead to me consider leaving the classroom so now I try to help as many teachers as possible deliver challenging RE.
