I’m Catherine Millar and I was in exactly that position. I’ve been a teacher and school leader since 2001 and have taught in inner-city schools in Glasgow, leafy-lane rural schools in North Yorkshire and on Europe’s largest army garrison. I’ve been a school governor (both as a parent and as an expert educator) and now help schools raise attainment the best way possible – through promoting a love of reading.
As a teacher, we'd had repeated Requires Improvement judgements and were struggling to close the gap. We’d tried every intervention going and were all working incredibly hard getting nowhere. I did what good educators do – I turned to the research. What I found transformed my teaching, pupils’ outcomes and all of our stress levels, all for the better.
