Year 6 Teacher

I grew up on the beautiful southern coast of England with my two brothers, a sister, and a succession of pets. I attended Mountbatten School in Romsey, Hampshire, and went on to study for a bachelor’s degree in communication at Bournemouth University. When I was young, I always wanted to be a primary school teacher. so, I decided to venture to London and undertake a PGCE at Kingston University. I qualified as a teacher in 2006 and made the move back to Bournemouth. Throughout my teaching career, I have taught in three large, multicultural junior schools. Special Educational Needs is a real passion of mine and for eight years, I was a Senior Leader and led Inclusion in two schools. In 2012, I gained a post-graduate certificate in Coordinating Special Educational Needs from Exeter University.

Outside of school, I have many interests. I love to travel; I have been lucky enough to have seen a lot of the world, but there is still so much to see. I very much enjoy keeping fit; this could be either running, swimming, cycling or going to the gym. I am eager to do my first marathon very soon (easier said than done!). Another passion of mine is the Performing Arts; I believe children can gain so much in both their learning and confidence through the arts.

I believe that children learn best when they are valued as individual people and where their work is carefully personalized according to their individual needs. If this is done successfully then they will be able to fulfil their true potential and shine!
