I am so excited to be joining the Winyates family this year. This will be my 4th year teaching having spent the past 3 years at St Johns. I was inspired to be a teacher during my gap year in France where I taught French children English. This experience was where I realised how passionate I was about teaching and what a privilege it was to be able to work with children and watch their curiosity and love for learning grow. My main goal in teaching is to make a positive impact in children's lives and encourage children to reach their full potential and achieve anything they set their mind to. As well as teaching I enjoy walking my dog, Jasper, baking, reading and playing netball
I started volunteering at Winyates while my children were here in the late 1990's. I joined the Winyates Staff as a teaching assistant in 2003 and have never looked back. I love seeing the children grow in knowledge and confidence. Seeing the smiles on their faces when they achieve what they thought they couldn't do.
I started at Winyates in 2014 as a lunchtime supervisor and when the opportunity to join as a teaching assistant came up I excitedly applied. I love working with children, helping with their learning and joining in with the fun.
