Rodney has been a teacher, subject lead and principal for 24 years in all three education sectors at various stages on his journey. Rodney came to the UK from South Africa in 2001. He has been Computer Science Lead but qualified with a BA in English and Psychology. Rodney has a wealth of personal experience and insight into racism and discrimination and the psychological impact these have had on both students and staff. He has become more acutely aware of the subtle but definite impact that racial discrimination is having on staff and students but also the continued discomfort caused with the raising of this topic among teachers. It is clear that teachers have two personas that unavoidably conflict with each other and he addresses these issues in his work around Race and Ethnic Diversity with empathy and fairness.
