Teacher Bio

Favourite subject at school and why: My favourite subject is science. I find it exciting and very useful because we can learn about many interesting concepts such as plants, animals, the universe, Earth and forces on Earth. It helps our understanding of the world around us.

Favourite children's book you have read: One of my favourite children’s books is “The Colour Monster”. It is a lovely book about a little monster learning to express his emotions. It can be read as a simple story about friendship, but can also help children to recognise, discuss and label their emotions.

What topics are you looking forward to teaching next year: I am looking forward to teaching our wonderful projects that provide the children with lots of new vocabulary and knowledge about the world we live in

Any other info:  Teaching is my passion. I love teaching and helping children grow and learn! I am married and I have two children. I also have two hamsters and I love looking after them. In summer I love going to the seaside.
