Having previously worked as a Teaching Assistant here at Bloxham Primary School , I started my teaching career in 2006, in Year 1, after completing a BA (Hons) degree in Primary Teaching (with English) at Westminster College. The job is constantly evolving. Children and and teaching staff come and go over the years and, I can honestly say, there has never been a dull day!
I like to encourage the children to take care of their environment and am therefore quite passionate about heading the ECO Team. Over the years, I have enjoyed being a part of developing the pond area; protecting the Great Crested Newts that live there.
I have lived in Deddington for the past 16 years with my family and other animals. I love to walk and run with my dogs across local fields and tracks.
As a child, my great passion was horses and my very first job after college was as a riding instructor.
I believe that, for learning to take place, it is my job to create a safe and happy environment.
One of the many rewards of teaching is watching a class grow in confidence, responsibility and with respect and kindness for one another.
