I am in my 14th year of teaching. I came into teaching after working within the business sector and realising it wasn’t for me. I completed my PGCE at MMU and haven’t looked back since. I have been lucky enough to have taught across the key stages, giving me valuable insight as to where children need to be, teaching in Key Stage One and Two before being given the opportunity to teach within the early years. This was when I discovered my passion lies within the early years, supporting and enabling children to learn and develop and nurturing their curiosity. I have taught within Reception and Nursery and love watching children blossom and grow both educationally and emotionally. The early years are the ground work for the future and it is here that I can honestly say that all staff in the early years have the children ‘s best interest at heart. We work on providing children with the best start, building on their skills, enabling them to explore the world around them promoting their inner inquisitiveness and building a love of learning. We are here as a team to support your child and you.
I previously taught at a school in Stafford since completing my teacher training with University of Derby in 2020. Prior to this, I worked as a nurse in the A&E department at both our local hospitals. During my time at my previous school, I have been lucky enough to lead music and bring my passion for this into the school when it was missing music in the curriculum. I have previously sung in bands and I am hoping that one day I will be able to do this again.
I have 3 children, so when I am not teaching I am usually found taking them to their various hobbies or riding rollercoasters at theme parks!
For me, working with children was always something that I should have pursued and I am so happy that I made that leap into teaching and that I get to share the next part of my teaching career with the children here at Ash Green. I would describe myself as caring, compassionate, organised and resilient. I aspire to create a nurturing environment where children love to learn through self-discovery and engagement.
