I qualified as a teacher in 1999 and have spent the last 16 years teaching at Oldway! I have taught in Nursery, Year 2 and Year 3.
I have experienced many changes during my time at Oldway and have been part of some exciting new initiatives. This includes the Sports Premium initiative, to ensure high quality teaching and learning in PE and the England-Shanghai National Maths exchange programme, to study the teaching of maths.
I have a personal interest in the Psychology of education and have a psychology diploma. I am the Autism Champion at Oldway Primary. This role involves supporting our pupils and their parents, training staff and raising an awareness and understanding of Autism, to ensure that Oldway continues to be an Autism Friendly school.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my two children and following their sporting and performing pursuits. We enjoy spending time on the beautiful beaches in the Bay and walking on the moors. I also enjoy reading, swimming and going to the gym.
I qualified as a teacher in 2008 and have been teaching at Oldway ever since. I have mainly taught in Year 3, but have also taught in Year 5 and within our nurture provision for children with special educational needs.
I thoroughly enjoy teaching all of the curriculum areas. However, I have a specialist subject knowledge in art and design and love outdoor learning sessions, where children develop a deeper understanding of their environment.
Outside of school, I love spending time with my husband and two young boys as well as baking, gardening and walking along our stunning coastline.
