Dr Emma Kell
  • Teacher and Author

I’ve been teaching for two decades, mainly in inner-London secondary school. I’m a middle leader with several years of senior leadership experience. In 2016, I completed my doctorate with Middlesex University on balancing teaching and parenthood and in January 2018, my book, How to Survive in Teaching, was published by Bloomsbury.
I’m passionately loyal to our wonderful but vulnerable profession. My heart is first and foremost in the classroom, and my writing and research is driven by the desire to give voice to both the broken and the successful members of our profession. Ultimately, my aim is to play my part to ensure that our young people – about whom this is all about – have people in front of them who are well-trained, who want to be there, and who are able to be humans as well as teachers.
