I have worked as a teacher in secondary, further and community education for 25 years before moving to the University of Edinburgh in 2006. I trained as a teacher of deaf children and an EAL tutor and used both approaches in my work in colleges with deaf students. At Edinburgh my main focus is researching deaf education and training teachers of deaf children. I work for the Scottish Sensory Centre for half a day a week. This involves working with a wide range of teachers, professionals, parents and d/Deaf people on policy issues about deaf education.
