What attracted you to the role at Skippers Hill?
The school value of every child being treated as an individual and given opportunities to develop in their own way was one of the key things that attracted me to Skippers. The school has such a lovely, warm feel to it and the pupils and staff were all very welcoming when I came for interview.
What skills and experience do you bring to the school?
I've been teaching across key stage 2 for two years, from year 3 up to year 6. I have experience of teaching a full curriculum including English, maths, science and PE. I have a real passion for drama and I'm really excited to develop this at Skippers.
Why did you decide to become a teacher?
I've always loved learning and I enjoy working with young people as no two days are the same! I volunteered for a local brownies group when I was younger and this made me realise that I wanted be a teacher.
What’s the best thing about being a teacher?
The light bulb moments are the best thing about being a teacher. When a child has worked through a problem and has really challenged them self and they finally get.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
I am a member of an amateur dramatic society so I often take part in plays which I absolutely love. I also enjoy playing stoolball, dance exercise classes, visiting the theatre and spending time with my friends and family.
