I love seeing children develop as they realise their potential, becoming confident and independent as they take on new challenges, whether in or outside of school. I am always inspired by how much we learn from them too as we see how they show kindness, courage and determination every day.
I've always had a desire to help people reach their full potential. My journey into teaching began when I worked as an outdoor activities instructor after leaving school. I've done a few different jobs since then, but something has always kept pulling me back to teaching. I retrained and haven't looked back since. I endeavour for the children I teach to have a positive mental attitude and develop the resilience they'll need to face the challenges of the future.
Supporting your child at home in maths
We know that sometimes supporting you child in Maths can be difficult when you don't know the method they have been taught in school. Therefore the year 6 team across St John's, Winyates and Barnack have created 6 quick 'how to' videos for some key skills your children will need in their arithmetic. These may help when supporting children with their homework or just some extra practise!
