Sally Burnham, Assistant Professor in History Education, has been awarded an Historical Association (HA) Honorary Fellowship.
These fellowships are awarded to people who have shown dedication to history teaching, the study of history, the support of other history professionals and to the HA and its remit. It is a prestigious award amongst the history and teaching communities.
In hearing that she was to be made an Honorary Fellow of the HA, Sally said: "I always try to support the HA and History teachers in any way that I can but you never know whether what you do makes a difference – to be recognised by the HA in this way means so much.".
Through her work in school, the university, Schools History Project and the Historical Association, Sally's contribution to the history education community in both our region and nationally is significant. She combines her role as a tutor on the PGCE with a part-time post in a local school where she also acts as a mentor to trainee history teachers. She is a constant source of support and inspiration for experienced history teachers, as well as beginning and early career teachers.
Well done Sally!
