I studied Education with Psychology at the University of Bath. During my time at university, I played field hockey in the highest university league in the country. After graduating, I came back to my home city of Norwich to complete my PGCE at the University of East Anglia.
As an NQT I moved to Croydon, South London, where I worked as a Year 3 class teacher in a large Primary school. I was on the SMSC (social, moral, spiritual and cultural) curriculum team, which allowed me to create a bespoke program for our pupils to have experiences that they wouldn't necessarily have access to, such as performing a dance in a busy London train station and sleeping under the stars.
At the age of 13, I started to attend summer camp in upstate New York. Once I finished my years as a camper, I worked there for 6 summers as riding staff and trip leader, eventually becoming the Assistant Headmistress. In 2018, I became an Adirondack 46er (having hiked all 46 mountains over 4,000ft in the Adirondack State Park) and hope to explore the local mountains when I move to Boston. I enjoy sharing my love of the outdoors with the children that I teach. Apart from a love of the outdoors, I love to read, cook, and travel.
I can't wait to live in such a vibrant city and work at a school where each child's learning journey is unique to them. I relish the opportunity to work with both children and their parents in order to ensure that every child flourishes.
