    Laura Cooke

    Year 1 Leader

    Laura Cooke

    Laura knew she wanted to be a teacher after her first day at school at just four years of age. She delights in the opportunity to inspire a lifelong love of learning in all children from the moment they start school. One of her first experiences of teaching was at her local performing arts school, where she helped run the Early Years classes in singing, dancing and acting. Laura graduated with a 2:1 in Contemporary History and Politics from the University of Leicester in 2011. It was here that Laura discovered Cheerleading, competing at a national level and performing at the Leicester Tigers’ and Walker’s stadiums. She trained as a Cheerleading Coach whilst completing her PGCE in Lower Primary Education (3-7 years) at the University of Cumbria in 2012.

     

    She has worked in various schools in the English Lake District National Park ever since, and enjoyed running Cheerleading clubs in all of them. Most of Laura’s 6 years of teaching experience has been in Early Years however her most recent role as Head of PE meant she was able to work across her infant school, as well as support other schools in the local community. She likes to contribute to the wider world and spent last summer delivering training to teachers in deprived areas of India. This spurred her interest in moving abroad to teach. Laura was very excited to come across the vacancy at BISS Puxi and is looking forward to making the move!
