Teacher Bio

Favourite subject at school and why: Reading, because I love to find out about new characters and different places.  I still read every day.

Favourite children's book you have read: Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl. This was one of the first books I remember reading in Junior school, all by myself. I love it because although Mr Fox is sly and very crafty, he is there for his family.

What topics are you looking forward to teaching next year: Our amazing projects, one of my most favourites is Sunshine and flowers.  During this project we are able to be outside, learning lots of new things in our garden. We grow plants, flowers and vegetables. We get to watch these grow from seeds into beautiful plants, but we have to look after them well! Sometimes we get a bit messy, covered in mud as we have to dig up weeds too!

Any other info: I love animals, I have two little dogs, that I adore. They can be a bit naughty, but so much fun and are lovely to cuddle up to after a long day at school.
