Teacher Bio

Favourite subject at school and why: I have always enjoyed maths and this comes from having an amazing teacher when I was at school.  When I left school I worked in a bank and this involved numbers and balancing figures.  So I have always had a job with maths involved, which has only enhanced my passion which I pass onto every class I teach.

Favourite children's book you have read: I have two favourite authors, the first is Anthony Brown as the illustrations are amazing and usually include animals.  My second favourite collection of books are the Harry Potter series, I think they take your imagination on an amazing journeyThe books are defiantly better than the films!

What topics are you looking forward to teaching next year? Maths would be my all time favourite  but I am looking forward to teaching and learning something different in History.  

Any other info:  As the children know I have several things I am very passionate about, the first is my dogs, Dolly, Tulip and Gus.  The second is I like to be quite creative and try to learn new skills all the time, at the moment I love to crochet, making all different kinds of toys.  I am also trying to teach myself quilting which is also very enjoyable.
