Mrs Morris (5JM)
I have been involved with Ash Green School since my sons began their education journey, way back in 1993. Coming from a business and industry based background, I took a break to raise a family and pondered a change of career. Being passionate about education, I was able to offer and use my life skills becoming a parent helper in Reception, Year one and Year two before embarking on my four degree course, at Keele University. I was inspired by the committed teachers at Ash Green and was rewarded with gaining a joint B.A. Honours in English and Ancient History, along with my Concurrent Certificate in Education. Upon graduating, I was fortunate to have gained a post at the school and began my teaching career in Year three, in the autumn of 1998. I spent 8 years in that year group before moving to the Infant department spending a memorable 10 years in Year two! At no time have I questioned my choice of career but have seen it as a privileged and inspiring vocation and I am very proud to be part of this very special ‘family’.
Miss Grifftiths (5RG)
I have always enjoyed working with children. After my Natural Sciences degree at the University of Cambridge, I worked as a youth and children’s worker and then trained for my PGCE at Keele University. I have been at Ash Green since November 2014. I have taught Year 5 and 6. I love teaching Science and I am the Science leader and Computing leader at Ash Green. So far during my time at Ash Green, I have been involved in a variety of fun activities, such as reliving war-time air raids and evacuation, performing Shakespeare at the New Vic, holding Anglo-Saxon trials, doing an archaeological dig, going on a residential trips and running a Dragons’ Den project. I am passionate about giving children great learning experiences; I think that is the best part of my job.
