Following the award of my degree in Drama and Education, I trained as a Royal Academy of Dance ballet teacher going on to teach ballet for a number of years. The joy, delight and curiosity of my pupils, and of my own children, sparked my desire to become a Primary School teacher. I completed my PGCE in 2006 and have taught in a variety of schools across the Primary age range.
Teaching should ignite a questioning mind and I love to help children make connections to the world around them. I encourage a positive attitude to learning, resilience and confidence in their own abilities in every child I teach.
As a Primary School teacher, I have an interest in many subjects with Reading and Writing the foundation stones for learning in them all. I am an avid reader and love to promote reading through my teaching, making links with authors, illustrators and opening children’s eyes to the wide range of amazing books that are available.
I have further specialised in Computing, which is a fantastic subject to explore as it develops logical thinking with imagination and creativity. I actively link the debugging of code to all other subjects – if you can spot, learn from and improve upon your mistakes you will go far in whatever you set your mind to.
In my free time I enjoy archery, representing my county at regional and national competition. I also love walking in the countryside around my home and taking photographs of the beauty around me. I have recently taken up the banjo, re-igniting my childhood passion for music.
I am looking forward to supporting your family through their learning journey here at Wolsey Hall.
