Reception Teacher

I joined the BSB family in 2013 working in Year 3 (SEN department) and then moved into the EYFS department - first as a Teddies teacher, then as a Nursery teacher and now as a Reception Teacher.

Armed with a Degree in Chemistry; Diplomas in Textile designing and The Montessori Method, I started my teaching career nearly 10 years back working with children in the early years/kindergarten group.

I can’t imagine a day that passes by without learning something new, and therefore I enjoy inculcating that sense of wonder, enjoyment and awe of learning something new in children and my love of arts has helped me to a large extent to achieve this. 

In my spare time, I dabble in painting and have a few exhibitions to my credit.

To help kids try and think about something in a way they haven't before – that to me is very fulfilling.
