What led you to teaching? Having grown up in a family of teachers I always found it inspiring to see how much enjoyment and satisfaction my parents got out of teaching and had always felt it was something I was drawn to as a career. Whilst working professionally in theatre for a few years after University I supported myself by doing some peripatetic music teaching and working with childrens choirs and drama groups and very quickly realised my passion for teaching and working with children and knew it was what I was meant to do.
What inspires you and what you do? Seeing children develop a love for performing arts and find the confidence to get up on a stage and perform.
What do you love most about Skippers? The friendly atmosphere and the fact that children are allowed to be children and develop as an individual. They are such happy children as a result of the care they receive at Skippers and that is a very special trait in a school.
What do you enjoy doing in your spare time? Singing with my two choirs outside of school, playing my musical instruments, long dog walks, going to the theatre, skiing holidays, spending time with family and friends, reading, running, yoga.
