My background is firmly rooted in education, although recently I have completed studies in Psychology. Before that I taught English and Drama at a local secondary school until the birth of my first child. Since then I have been involved with intervention teaching and supporting pupil premium students.
I have three children. The eldest two attend Bearwood Primary where I truly believe they thrive and excel within the positive atmosphere of the school. As a family we enjoy exploring the local countryside and coastline as well as being involved in our local church. My hobbies include gardening, theatre and cake decorating, although I wish I had more time to enjoy them sometimes. I hope I will be able to support staff and make a positive contribution to Bearwood School community.
I have been teaching for over twenty years in a variety of school settings both in the UK and abroad and before that, I worked as a Youth Worker for two years. I am currently teaching part time in Key Stage 1 at a nearby school.
Providing children and young people with the best education and opportunities possible has been important to me for a long time. This opportunity to support and help the school at which my children attend is something I am excited about being involved in!
I am married to Nick and we have two children who attend Bearwood. We enjoy being involved in a nearby church. I love to spend time with my family whether that is walking in the countryside, swimming, baking or playing games. I also enjoy playing the flute, running (slowly) and my most recent discovery is Boxercise!
