Christine has a passion for inspiring and working with young people, having worked for nearly twenty-five years in the teaching profession in schools in London and her native North East.
Christine is a determined advocate for the improvement of educational opportunities, self-belief and aspirations of all young people and this runs through everything that she professionally undertakes. As Director of ‘Everything Educational’ she works across the UK on a consultancy basis. Christine supports several schools in the implementation of the new curriculum and regularly delivers bespoke ‘Super Learning Days’ to hundreds of GCSE and A Level English students across the country. She also organises cultural and careers events for students who are identified by schools as struggling with self-esteem issues.

As well as planning and coordinating Teachmeets, she regularly delivered workshops at NATE’s highly successful national conferences. She regularly writes blogs about education and the wellbeing of young people and her articles have been published in the national magazines of both NATE and the National Literacy Trust.
