Kerry joined St Mary’s University in 2014 after previously working in primary schools for fifteen years. Within that time in schools, Kerry led the subject of English, was a staff governor and had the role of Lead English Teacher in the borough of Richmond. Kerry also led staff and supported children who were in receipt of the pupil premium funding.

Kerry has a BA in Primary Education, a MA in Education and a Post Graduate Certificate in Higher Education (PGCHE). She is a fellow of the Higher Education Academy. At St Mary’s she is a lecturer in Primary English on both the PG programme and the BA programme and also teaches the English elective students where the students develop their knowledge of children’s literature and of how to promote a pedagogy of reading for pleasure – a passion of hers.

Kerry belongs to the UKLA special interest groups for reading and writing and, along with her team, provides CPD for local schools in developing their knowledge of children’s reading practices.
