Charmaine Brown

Pre-Nursery Starfish Class Teacher

I started teaching in an Outstanding Private Nursery in South London on a temporary contract after working as a supply teacher for a few months. I enjoyed the Early Years setting so much I ended up staying nearly 6 years. I eventually left to gain more experience in a school setting and have worked at my current school and another in the same borough since then. My current school is an Outstanding Church of England School in Wimbledon and has very close links with the local community and church. 

I have always worked in the Early Years either in Nursery or Reception classes as I feel it is a crucial period in the school lives of children and I enjoy making it fun. I have been Lead Coordinator for Art and Design twice and I am currently Lead Coordinator for Computing in my present setting. I have set up a group of Digital Leaders and organised training for Internet Safety and new software for staff. I am an English specialist with a keen interest in finding new and innovative ways to deliver fun phonics sessions.

My daughter and I are very excited about our move to China and we are already planning things we want to do, see and try. I have 2 daughters aged 20 and 13 who keep me active and laughing. In my spare time I enjoy watching movies, and reading; which is a passion of mine. I attend a boxing class once a week and would love to try out Tai Chi or Yoga when I am in China. I am a keen home cook and love trying out new recipes at home on my willing family. I like eating out and catching a theatre show when I can. I have visited many of the museums in London a number of times as my children enjoy them so much.
