Year 1

Miss Darby (1AD)

I want children to be inspired by learning, engaged in the learning process and to excel in all that they do. I also want to instil a love of learning in children, so that they will always have a desire to grow and develop.

Throughout my teaching career I have had the opportunity to work in a wide range of schools from inner city to small rural village schools. I have a specialism for Early Primary education and have taught children from Nursery right up to Year 2. Before joining the Ash Green team, I was a Religious Education and Worship Leader in a controlled Church of England First School in which I developed the teaching and understanding of Religious Education and Christian Values across the school.  I have developed a fantastic knowledge and creative approach to the Early Years and Key Stage One curriculum; with a particular passion for phonics! Since joining Ash Green I have become involved with the school’s PTFA and have enjoyed working with members of the school community to organise fundraising events.
