I am incredibly lucky, as not only have I taught at St John’s since 2010, but I actually attended the school myself as a child! For seven years of my childhood, I was able to explore the nature trail, investigate all of the beautiful grounds and participate in wonderful opportunities within the school community. I feel privileged to be able to offer pupils the same exciting and engaging opportunities, which I still remember fondly today.  

 

I have spent a number of years teaching in Reception; sharing those precious first memories of school with many, many children! I have also enjoyed moving up through the school; mirroring the creative and hands-on approach from the Early Years curriculum. My aim is to ensure that every child is given the opportunity to achieve their potential through fun, engaging learning experiences which enable them to develop and thrive in their own way.  

 

This year I am excited to develop my leadership role across the school further. I will continue to lead English (including Phonics and early reading) and am excited to continue our school journey into reading for pleasure. Early reading and writing is a passion of mine and I strongly believe that it is every child’s right, to be given the tools and knowledge in order to become confident and passionate readers and writers.

 

I have two young children of my own, so life is very busy at the moment! Outside of school, I love spending time with family and friends, especially outdoors.

I am so excited to get started here at TSJ after recently qualifying as a teacher. I completed the last placement of my PGCE here and enjoyed my time so much that I am so pleased I got the chance to stay here a bit longer!! I had this lovely class during my time as a student teacher and feel very lucky to be following them up into Year 2/3. I learnt a lot while I spent time teaching this class, and these children helped me grow in confidence which I am very thankful for.

 

I have always loved working in the education sector and have had a wide range of experiences in different settings that have enhanced my aspiration to be a teacher. I aim to ensure all children feel valued within my classroom, whilst providing them with ample opportunities to discover their true potential. I am very passionate about creativity, and the fact that there will not be one way that suits all for children to learn. I explored this idea during my PGCE and learnt that for children to develop their own passion for learning, they must receive it in ways that are exciting, interesting, and suited to them as individuals as well as a class. I believe that the environment of the classroom has a big impact on all members of it, and I will strive to create an effective, enjoyable, creative, and engaging one.

 

I am a lover of reading and enjoy getting lost in a book. Reading is such a valuable and enjoyable skill, and I believe all children should be encouraged to develop their own love of reading! I also like to spend my time with my family, friends and walking my dogs exploring the beautiful outdoors.
