Biggest achievement... when I started university I set myself short, medium and long term goals that by the time I turned 25 I wanted to have achieved my undergraduate, masters, PGCE and UEFA B qualifications. By May I will have successfully completed all of this and still be 24 so as cheesy as it is that would have to be my biggest achievement.
Why teaching... I wanted to work with a generation of children who come from difficult, potentially less privileged backgrounds who perhaps didn’t engage with school who I could then work with to re-engage them in the education process. To improve them professionally and personally and give them the opportunities which I am very grateful to have received as a young person.
At Manchester City I also enjoyed delivering feedback to children/players aged 11-16 year old's and as I enjoyed this I thought why not combine my passion for coaching/teaching and sports; Onside and Rochdale Sacred Heart were perfect for this.
