I have been teaching in primary education for seven years, spending most of my time across years 5 and 6. As well as being a class teacher, I also act as an SLE in maths for the Torbay Teaching School Alliance (TTSA) where I get to work with and help develop other leaders in local schools.
Being physically active is certainly a passion of mine. I very much enjoy keeping fit and since a young age, I have been a keen sportsman, predominantly playing competitive football. My interest in physical activity eventually lead to completing a degree in sports and exercise science whilst at university in Cardiff, before deciding to train as a teacher here in the south west (an area of the country I love to be in and have always lived). I continue to promote an enthusiasm for P.E. and active lifestyles and always try to seek new, fun and engaging activities and games for children to engage with.
Outside of school, I gain great satisfaction by taking my two Spaniels for walks. They also act as my running buddies from time to time, motivating me to try and keep up with them. Aside from this, my wife and I (dogs included) thoroughly enjoy exploring the diversity of Devon and discovering new favourite places (finding some scrumptious food and drinks is usually integrated). We look forward to continuing to explore.
