I studied a BSC (Hons) in Behavioural Science at the University of Dundee, where I developed a passion for child development. After completing the course, I worked as a learning representative for the communicators workers union in BT. There I worked in line with a local college to develop a learning center that offers the employees evening courses to develop their lifelong learning skills. This led me to develop my passion for teaching, and I decided to complete my PGDE in Primary Education at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow.
For me, working with children is a passion first and a profession second. Over my teaching career I have developed a philosophy of valuing each child as an individual as well as part of a community. I aim to give children as many learning opportunities and experiences as possible in order to engage, motivate, and equip them with lifelong learning skills. I believe a "hands on", child-centred, challenging, and creative curriculum is essential in developing children’s skills, knowledge, and their role as global citizens of the future.
