Role at Vinehall

Swimming teacher

What made you want to become a teacher?

I was inspired by my own boys’ swimming teacher over twenty years ago and felt that this would be a perfect career change from my previous role as a personal assistant.

What do you enjoy most about Vinehall?

I enjoy seeing happy children progressing through the school and watching them gain confidence, having fun and reaching their full potential.

Your most exciting project/trip in the pipeline

To see one of my swimmers at the Olympics one day!

When you are not in the school you are most likely to be.

I may be found on the back of the Harley enjoying a ride in the country.

Something not many people know about you is.

I learned to ride a horse and motorbike before driving a tractor and a car!

Best teaching memory

A sixth former who was a complete beginner and her tremendous effort to achieve a 1,000 metre distance swim after less than a year’s lessons.
