After completing my BEd Hons degree in English at Westminster College, Oxford in 1999, I briefly returned home to Kent to begin my teaching career with a wonderful class of Year 1 children. In 2001, I began my Bloxham journey as a Year 2 teacher and English leader. Since becoming part of Bloxham Primary School, I have taught children from Foundation Stage to Year 4. I became the school's PFSU Leader in 2012 and subsequently our Middle Phase Leader of Years 1, 2 and 3 in 2013. I am also our school's RE Leader.
I love teaching and working with children and am committed to ensuring that each and every child is given the very best opportunities to learn, thrive and most importantly, be happy. A class of inquisitive minds is a wonderful thing and guarantees that each and every day will be truly unique. My passion for teaching and learning has led me to undertake various mentoring roles over the past few years. These have been within the local community, for Brookes University and am currently a tutor for trainee teachers in Oxfordshire to assist in supporting and monitoring their teaching and progress.
When not at school, my time is devoted to my husband and two young sons who keep us extremely busy! We have a huge love of the outdoors and are big football, rugby, cricket and F1 fans.
