Teacher of PE and Dance
I was brought up in Blackburn and have played Ice Hockey since I was 7 years old. I am proud to have been part of Team GB from 2003 to 2016 and before moving to South Yorkshire I also played Ice Hockey in Canada for a year.
As part of Team GB I proudly captained the team for a season then supported as assistant captain for 6 seasons. My greatest achievement was winning my gold medal in 2008 whilst playing in Hungary. I have a total of 1 gold, 5 silvers and 2 bronze medals which I won playing internationally.
I attended Sheffield Hallam University and graduated with BSC Hons before moving to Middlesex for a year to complete my PGCE in Physical Education.
I have been teaching at Barnsley Academy for 5 years and I am part of the Teaching and Learning Team. I still play Ice Hockey for Sheffield Shadows and enjoy a range of other sports including netball, football and trampolining. An interesting fact about me is that I cannot swim but Mrs Wimlett has promised to teach me.
