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 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.
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.
I moved to China in August 2017 with my teenage daughter and we both love Beijing. We have made lots of new friends and enjoy our new social life. We have visited a few cities in China since moving here and still have a lot more places we would like to explore next. I am currently the Assistant Early Years Coordinator and after working in Pre-Nursery for a year I am looking forward to joining the Reception Team.
