I’ve been a primary school teacher for 10 years and I’m now embarking on my 11th year. To celebrate, I wanted to explore the world of teaching in an international school. I spent two years teaching in an Inner city London primary school, before relocating back to Nottingham to be close to my family. Having predominately taught in Year One, I must admit it is my favourite to teach, as during this time, I see so much personal growth as the children develop throughout the school year. It is truly a magical experience to be a part of.
I have a lot of admiration for children and families, particularly in the current climate. I’m honoured to be a part of any child’s educational journey. I like to construct a classroom environment whereby children become confident and independent learners who can take risks, all while ensuring I provide a range of opportunities for new learning, using innovative techniques to engage and challenge my learners.
Some of my favourite things to do outside of the classroom involve hiking to find the most specular views and relaxing with a large cup of tea with a thrilling book.
