Jo has recently joined Lessness Heath Primary School as a Specialist Art Teacher/HLTA/Cover Supervisor working across all year groups.
Jo began her creative adventure by gaining a BA (Hons) Public Art & Design (Sculpture) at Chelsea College of Art & Design. She has worked in education since 2003, beginning as an Art/Construction Technician, and climbing the career ladder to work as an Art and Photography Teacher in both Secondary Schools and Further Education colleges.
Jo is a natural leader, and has combined her passion for new ideas, with organisational skills, by working (summer 2019) as a Project Manager in Tanzania for Raleigh International, encouraging the youth to be the ambassadors of change, with particular reference to deforestation, climate change and sustainability. Jo will continue her environmental challenge (summer 2021) by working in Mozambique as part of a Marine Conservation/Research project run by Love The Oceans.
Jo's enthusiasm and ideas percolate, enthusing others and refreshing the eyes of many, keeping an open-mind as to how the world could be redesigned, and a desire for infinite new possibilities. She prides herself as a forward-thinker, being flexible and adapting to change. She is highly honoured to be given the position as Project Lead-Art, being passionate about enabling every child to fulfil their optimum potential and committed to building exceptional schools.
