More about me:

Tell us about what you do at Giglets

As Head of Education Engagement, I consider how best to support the teachers and schools who use Giglets, throughout their subscriptions. The Education Engagement Team is always very busy running events and training, developing support content and providing school specific support. It’s a wonderful job being able to work closely with so many schools and teachers!

How did you find yourself working for an EdTech company?

I have always been passionate about literacy and using digital tools to enhance learning. In 2017, I was lucky enough to be working as a primary teacher in a school that was using Giglets and the chance arose to join the Giglets Team in a training and support role. It’s proven to be an excellent opportunity to further develop as a teacher and be involved in the sector from another perspective.

What are you most proud of since joining Giglets?

We recently held online storytelling events for schools where classes could join and listen to a Giglets story read by a professional storyteller. I coordinated and hosted the events and it was incredible to see so many classes across the country share and enjoy the Giglets stories!

If you weren’t at Giglets, what would you be doing?

I would be back in a primary classroom and, hopefully, I would be using Giglets there!

What 3 words would you use to describe working at Giglets?

Rewarding, interesting and varied.
