I am originally from Stratford-upon-Avon (the birthplace of William Shakespeare!) and I have been teaching in the UK for 5 years from EYFS to KS2. I have always loved working with children and young people and spent two years as a residential youth worker before I went to University. After finishing my degree I worked for a large corporate company running a youth outreach programme, but found that for most of my day I was stuck behind a desk. Although I enjoyed the times I did spend working in schools, I missed seeing the same group of children progress over time so I went back to University to become a teacher and have never looked back. I love that every day is different and seeing children enjoying learning and making progress always brings me joy.
In my spare time I love to sew, knit and bake, and growing up in Stratford-upon-Avon gave me a lifelong love of theatre and drama. I enjoy singing, acting and dancing, I always like to try something new and learn new skills– I even took up ballet a few years ago!
