What is your role at Vinehall?
English Teacher as well as enrichment activities for all readers, avid and reluctant.
What made you want to be a teacher?
I spent two years teaching English in Japan many moons ago, which gave me a taste for teaching. Now I am enjoying teaching a subject that I love to children and watching them make progress in their learning.
What do you enjoy most about Vinehall?
The community spirit – we are small and friendly!
What are you planning that you are most excited about?
Helping the Year 4s learn to cook on a more regular basis! A valuable and fun life skill – Mrs Barrett and I would like to do cookery with the children at least once every half-term.
What is your best teaching memory?
My most surprising teaching memory was when a pigeon flew into my classroom in Japan!
When you are not in the classroom I am most likely to be …
With my children and my bonkers tortoiseshell cat.
Something not many people know about you is …
I used to be a lawyer but before that I worked as a legal journalist for a year. Law is fascinating but teaching is so much more rewarding.
