As a primary school teacher I am motivated by the needs of all of the children and will adopt a wide variety of techniques and strategies in my endeavour to appeal to every member of the class. I love learning and relish the opportunity to share this with my students and other teachers.
My teaching career began 20 years ago and in that time I have worked with all primary age ranges. I have also been involved in the training of student teachers, the moderation of end of KS2 writing and had the responsibility for many subjects. I am currently the Literacy and Phase 2 leader at my school which enables me to support , mentor and train other members of staff.
Although I enjoy teaching all areas of the primary curriculum, English is my specialism and my passion. For me, one of the highlights of my job is sharing my love of Shakespeare with the children I teach through talking and drama projects . I am very keen to share my love of literature and drama with both adults and children.
When I am not working, if you can drag me away from the book I am reading, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy bike rides, walking our dog and visiting the beach in the summer.
