During my time at Warrington, I worked with a variety of students, from all different age groups, including teaching English Literature at Key Stage 5. I also coordinated the school’s annual Book Week and worked collaboratively with the school librarian to promote a reading culture – which is something I am passionate about. In addition to teaching, I have mentored both students and trainee teachers and in 2014 completed my studies for a Masters in Education.
In my free time I enjoy visiting the theatre and live music – so Houston is the perfect place for me! I love to travel and explore new places and cannot wait to experience all of the things this city has to offer. Keeping fit is also important to me and I regularly participate in a range of fitness activities, such as circuit training and dancing.
What the students say about me...
‘She engages the class and there is not one English lesson which we do not look forward to. She pays attention to the whole class and yet still manages to talk to us individually’
‘Miss Crossland is a lovely teacher and the verbal and written feedback is given quickly’
‘I’ve learnt a lot in her lessons and I think her way of teaching is effective and fun! I look forward to the next two years of English.’
This school is different to all others I have worked at because…
There is the real sense of community. The students are friendly, enthusiastic, polite and most importantly passionate about learning, making this a wonderful place to be.
