Teacher Bio

Favourite subject at school and why: I enjoyed Maths whilst at school. I was good with numbers, sometimes I made mistakes whilst in rush, My teacher spoke to me and explained “It’s okay to make mistakes, just take your time, read all the questions twice when working out your answers and double check.” Since then I always make sure to check my work.

Favourite children's book you have read: My favourite is 'Peace at Last' by Jill Murphy. I have lots of memories connected with this book because it was my daughter's favourite book and we read it every night.

What topics are you looking forward to teaching next year: I am really looking forward to teaching various different topics next year, including learning about the different stages of human life, Kings and Queensand finding out all about our wonderful world.

Any other info:  I love baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes for my friends and family.
