Mrs. Hornsby studied at Roehampton University in the UK and qualified after the four year degree with a BA in Primary Education. Prior to this, she completed the CELTA course in London. Mrs. Hornsby began her career in education as a teacher of English as a foreign language. The experience and enjoyment she gained in teaching English as a foreign language to students of all ages and nationalities led her to take her skills further and she began to teach French, one of her native languages, to primary school children in London. Working in various primary schools gave her an insight into the role of a Primary school teacher and sparked a desire to pursue her education further in order to fulfil my ambition of becoming a teacher.
Mrs. Hornsby's thoughts on High Performance Learning:
I believe that cross-curricular links and contextualising learning, ensures children are fully involved with the learning process in all subjects of the National Curriculum.
I always endeavour to deliver the Curriculum in an imaginative and creative way. I strive to continually motivate the children, as it is evident to me that high quality teaching takes place in a stimulating environment that provides them with opportunities to learn through their own discoveries and interests.
