I graduated from De Montfort University in 1999 with a BEd hons.
My first teaching post was with a Year 1 class at an Independent day school in Cambridgeshire. I then taught in a mainstream school in KS1 before moving to Oxfordshire in 2004.
My next post was as a Foundation Stage class teacher in Bodicote.
I then taught in a mixed Year 1-2 class at a school in Banbury, for a couple of years, before taking my maternity leave.
I returned to work on a part-time basis teaching a Year 5 class.
In 2012 I was offered the post here, at Bloxham Primary School as a Numbers Count Teacher. This was a great opportunity to extend my professional development.
The following year I extended my qualification to Numbers Count 2, which means that I am now able to teach the Numbers Count Maths intervention to both KS1 & KS2 children.
Then in September 2016 I took on the role of Foundation Stage teacher, which I thoroughly enjoy!
It's a privilege to be a part of the children's learning journey.
We have a very happy, supportive team of parents, teachers and children, here in the Big Bloxham House!
In my spare time I love being with my 3 sons, we do lots of exciting things together...including football and Lazer Quest!
I like outdoor fitness training, circuit training and the gym. I play Netball for a local team, which I really enjoy.
I'm a huge supporter of the charity 'Dogs for Good'. My black labrador belongs to the charity. She is a demonstration dog on the PAWs scheme. Helping families with children with autism.
