Lucy Rose Flexible Teacher Talent, UK
Lucy Rose joined the Teach First programme in 2004 and trained as a teacher of Spanish and French. She shared the school journey from Special Measures to Outstanding working in a variety of roles as a middle and senior leader. After having her son, she was disappointed to find resistance to flexible working and a strong culture of presenteeism which was difficult to navigate. She left full time teaching after her daughter was born and during this 'break', she retrained as an English specialist, became ridiculously interested in timetabling and met Lindsay at the Innovation Series. Lucy now works flexibly teaching English at a London secondary school.
